Thomas pledges elsewhere
Arkansas recently offered a scholarship to running back Johnathan Thomas.
Running back Johnathan Thomas, 5-11, 205, 4.47 seconds in the 40 yard dash, of Danvers, (Mass.) St. John's Prep tweeted he has committed to Maryland. He and his father visited Arkansas on Monday.
The decision is very much a surprise after the positive comments he made after visiting the Hogs.
