The Razorbacks may have just beaten Tennessee on the recruiting trail for the second time in a week.
After landing a commitment from Tennessee native and Volunteer target Ryan Winkel, Arkansas may have just taken another step closer to landing another prospect the Vols coveted. Recent Oklahoma decommit Treveon Johnson announced Wednesday he will not take an official visit to Knoxville this weekend, the final weekend schools are allowed to host recruits leading up to next week’s National Signing Day.
That news appears to be good for the Razorbacks, as Johnson has been courted by both programs in recent weeks. In fact, Johnson did not decommit from Oklahoma until Tennessee head coach Jeremy Pruitt made a stop at his Brenham, Texas home.
Johnson did, however, take an official visit to Fayetteville two weekends ago — just over a month after receiving a scholarship offer from Chad Morris and his Razorback program. Listed as an athlete that could play on either side of the ball, Arkansas is recruiting Johnson as a receiver.
The Texas athlete shared the news of his plans Wednesday morning:
After talking with both my parents and coaches I have decide not to take my official visit to the University of Tennessee this weekend.
