Iowa football gets oral commitment


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Texas defensive lineman Donavan Johnson announced over the weekend he will be a member of the Iowa football team, orally committing shortly after the Hawkeyes’ 30-28 victory over Michigan on Oct. 10.

Johnson, a three-star recruit, according to Rivals.com, decided to give his promise to Kirk Ferentz and the Hawkeye program because he enjoyed both the campus atmosphere and fans, as well as the football and academic facilities.

The 6-2, 245-pound Johnson received offers from Nebraska, Purdue, Kansas State, Iowa State, and TCU.

According to Rivals.com, Johnson ranks as the No. 43 defensive tackle in the nation.

Possessing a great deal of athleticism and versatility, Johnson gives Iowa many options as a skilled defense end, defensive tackle, and offensive lineman.

“Everything was great,” Johnson told Rivals.com. “We went out and ate with some of the coaches and got to tour the facilities and everything. I really like the school and the campus, and the fans at the game were great.”
