Arkansas flipped a recruit from one of its SEC East counterparts on Wednesday morning, and that recruit made his choice known in style.

Dominique Johnson, a three-star running back from Crowley, Texas, had been verbally committed to Missouri since June. However, on the first day of the early signing period, Johnson signed his national letter of intent to attend Arkansas. 

During a ceremony at his school, Johnson wore a Missouri hat — only to throw it to the ground, unzip his jacket and reveal an Arkansas shirt. The drama!

Johnson committed to Missouri back in June when Barry Odom was the Tigers’ head coach. Since then, Odom was fired and landed at Arkansas as the defensive coordinator under new Razorbacks head coach Sam Pittman. Pittman also added former Missouri offensive line coach Brad Davis to his staff in Fayetteville.

But as recently as Monday morning, Johnson tweeted that he would be signing with Mizzou. 

Johnson ultimately had a change of heart and decided to follow Odom to Arkansas. He even was the first recruit to officially sign with Arkansas on Wednesday morning. 

Just another day in the world of recruiting.
