Four-star RB ready to check out the SEC

Four-star running back Johnathan Thomas (Danvers, Mass./Saint John’s Prep) is expecting to see something he’s not been accustomed to growing up in the Northeast.

The No. 1 prospect in the state of Massachusetts is visiting Arkansas beginning Sunday, and he believes it will be an eye-opening trip south, where college football reigns supreme.

“It’s a whole new experience,” Thomas said. “It’s all about football down there; it’s life. Being up from Boston, people like football, but people down there love it. That’s something that really interests me.”
