Ricky Johnson Talks about Season
"It's been really tough this season, we've have a very young team on both sides of the ball, Johnson stated." "The defenses double me when I split out and it's frustrating when you can't get some things done."
Johnson had offers from Arkansas, Tulsa, Georgia Tech, Texas A & M, Louisiana and Ole Miss. So why did he commit so early in the process to Arkansas?
"When you visit programs, most of them have very good facilities and it really comes down to how comfortable you feel when you visit, said Ricky." "I really liked the program and I looked at the depth chart for next year."
While Johnson is committed, he still has the opportunity to take unofficial and official visits. Ricky recently attended the UL game against Kent State and plans on attending this weekends Sun Belt clash against rival Arkansas State.
"I attended the Kent State game and it was fun, Johnson said." "I really like the way the coaches are using Jason Chery in the offense; I've been keeping up with him through the season."
The Cajun offense has produced some serious numbers this season, what has the Cajun staff told Johnson about his opportunities at UL next season?
"They told me that I have an opportunity to play a similar role as Jason Chery as a freshman, Ricky stated." "They're the local school and my family is in the area, so I just wanted to take a visit."
Ricky Johnson has scored a 17 on the ACT and currently sports a 3.5 GPA in his core. Johnson is interested in Engineering as a major.
