The Razorbacks land their second transfer of the day in John Ridgeway. He could be the cog in the middle the Razorbacks have desperately needed for quite sometime.
I want to thank all the schools who showed interest in me and offering me. I am extremely blessed for the opportunities. But at this time after thoroughly weighing my options, I have decided to commit to the University of Arkansas!!! #WPS @CoachSamPittman @CoachAshDL pic.twitter.com/ltjsVudyIU— John Ridgeway III (@ridgeway_79) April 25, 2021
Ridgeway is 6’6 325 and was a the number one target for Sam Pittman’s Hogs when he entered the transfer portal early last week.
As soon as the Razorbacks offered him, many others came calling. Texas, Ole Miss, Tennessee, USC, Michigan, Iowa and many others offered a spot to Ridgeway.
The physical specimen, Ridgeway, had 22 tackles, three for losses and one interception last season in four games for the Redbirds. In his four-year college career, Ridgeway had 102 tackles, eight tackles for a loss, one sack and one interception.
