Coaching staff, track program help Hogs land on 4-star WR's list

The Arkansas coaching staff played a major role in the Razorbacks landing on highly recruited junior receiver Malcolm Johnson Jr.’s list of top schools.

Johnson Jr., 6-1, 190 pounds, of Alexandria (Va.) St. Stephen's & St. Agnes School, narrowed his list to Arkansas, Alabama, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Virginia Tech, Tennessee, Auburn, LSU, Oklahoma, Georgia, Texas and Maryland on Sunday.

“I’m just very curious about Arkansas,” Johnson said. “I felt like they were very authentic with me at the beginning, so that’s what really stuck out for me when I was making this decision.

“I’m not saying every school that’s off the list isn't authentic, but I felt like they were genuine.
