Recruiting Update with Arkansas Standout Trajen Johnson

Scout gets a recruiting update with Trajen Johnson, who is getting a wide array of interest and approaching double digit offers.

Trajen Johnson, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound wide receiver from Little Rock (Ark.) Pulaski Academy is starting to put together a solid offer lists with schools like Army, Columbia, Dartmouth, Harvard, Penn, and Yale.

"I think the recruiting process is going well so far," Johnson said. "I have always had dreams of playing at the next level and now that those dreams are finally coming true it makes me want to work harder to perfect my craft."

Johnson is receiving high interest from a wide array of colleges that have yet to offer ad he spoke bout some of those programs individually.

"I've been hearing from CincinnatiDuke, Arkansas State, Air Force, Central Arkansas, Missouri State, and Texas State," Johnson reported. 

Air Force - "Air Force has been showing a lot of interest and I am getting mail from them every Monday. It would be great to receive an offer from them because I have a former teammate Robert Ator who is currently on the team and could give me a players view of the Air Force program."

Arkansas State - "Arkansas State also has one of the best spread systems that I think I would flourish in. It would be great to receive an offer from them because they are constantly so dominant in the Sun Belt."

Central Arkansas - "UCA is closer to home and has a very explosive offense. I have been talking to coach (Nathan) Brown and he has also been on campus and they seem very interested."

Cincinnati - "Cincinnati has been showing a lot of interest and I think it would be an amazing offer if I received it. There offense is a lot like the offense I currently run and coach (Mike) Denbrock seems to really like my film and I hope to receive a offer."

As a junior in 2016, Johnson secured 43 receptions for 923 yards and 14 touchdowns.

"I think my biggest strength as a player would be my ability to break tackles and make any play a big one," Johnson said. "I run crisp routes and I am able to catch in traffic as well as go get the deep ball. My football IQ is very high and I am a student of the game, constantly trying to find any advantage to beat my defender and make my QB's job easier."

Johnson, who reports a 4.12 GPA and a 30 ACT, will be making an unofficial visit to Duke (6/3) and will attend the Memphis Mega Camp (6/11).
