Gus Malzahn and Arkansas State picked up their second commitment of the 2013 recruiting class here today when in-state athlete Mark Johnson of Prescott pulled the trigger and committed to ASU during the Red Wolves Big Wolf Junior Day.

It only took one visit for the talented in-state athlete to realize that Arkansas State was the place for him.

“It was pretty nice, I liked it a lot,” Johnson told AStateNation.com. “The coaches seem like fathers to me already. It feels like I have been here before, it definitely feels like home.”

Those were just a few of the reasons that the 6-foot-2, 170-pound athlete chose to be a Red Wolf.

“I’m very excited about my commitment to ASU,” Johnson said. “I really feel great around the coaches, they are fun to be around. The campus is great and I really like what Coach Malzahn is building here.”

AStateNation.com got a chance to visit with two of Johnson’s coaches to get their thoughts on the talented athlete.

“He is a great character guy,” Coach Damion Williams said. “He is a high energy guy and someone who never takes plays off.”

Johnson’s other coach Danny Magga agreed with Coach Williams.

“He is an explosive player,” Coach Magga said. “He has tremendous upside and will be a great player for Arkansas State.”

Johnson is commitment No. 2 for Arkansas State. Keep up with Arkansas State Recruiting at your only source for on the ground coverage in Jonesboro, AStateNation.com.
