Arkansas Lands Jayden Johnson, Former South Carolina Commitment

Hog Recruiting

No. 3.

FAYETTEVILLE — Cedartown (Ga.) High School three-star safety Jayden Johnson has committed to Arkansas.

He announced his decision on Thanksgiving.

Johnson, 6-2, 194, committed to South Carolina on June 15, but then opted to decommit on Tuesday with the recent firing of Will Muschamp as head coach of the Gamecocks.

Johnson holds 20 offers including one from the Razorbacks on April 23. He was recruited to Arkansas by Barry Odom.

Johnson has helped his team to a 6-2 record this season. They will take on Arabia Mountain (Ga.) on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. He plays on both sides of the ball for his team. He has 17 tackles, including 11 solo, one sack, a quarterback hurry, three interceptions and one pass breakup. He has returned a kickoff 26 yards. On offense, Johnson has carried 48 times for 347 yards and 15 touchdowns. He has caught 17 passes for 336 yards and three touchdowns.

Arkansas now has 20 commitments for the Class of 2021.
