A two-sport star has emerged in Arp, Texas with wide receiver Sedrick Johnson who is also an all-state selection for basketball as well.
At 6-foot-4, 185 pounds, Johnson has already picked up scholarship offers from Texas A&M and Houston in both basketball and football. Though he went to a junior day at Texas A&M for football, he has his heart set on the basketball court.
"I would like to play basketball in college," Johnson said. "I've got plenty of interest in both sports. I really am just trying to play one, but I could play two."
Johnson took in College Station at a junior day for the Aggies. He says that was certainly well worth the trip.
"It was nice and we had a lot of fun," Johnson said about his trip to A&M. "I really liked the campus, that was pretty nice. The coaches just told me that they wanted me to go up there, play, and be an Aggie."
The Texas A&M coaches also spoke with him about playing both sports.
"They said I could do both basketball and football," Johnson said. "But, they also said it would be hard."
Johnson says he earned all-district honors for his football performance as a junior and has been starting for Arp since he was a freshman. He also says that he earned all-district, all-region, and all-state honors for basketball as a small forward.
As a receiver, Johnson says that he's the guy that can make the tough catch look easy.
"I'm just going to go get the ball where it's put," he said. "I'm a physical receiver."
SMU, Florida State, Oklahoma State, and Texas Tech are also recruiting Johnson. He doesn't claim any favorite schools at this point.
