University of Arkansas coach Sam Pittman received a double dose of good news on Sunday when two defensive linemen publicly committed to the Hogs.

Defensive lineman JaQuentin Madison was first to go public with his pledge following his official visit to Fayetteville.

Madison, 6-3 and 280 pounds, of Alpharetta, Ga., chose Arkansas over offers from Missouri, North Carolina State, Pittsburgh, SMU, Georgia Tech, Kansas and other programs.

Madison mentioned several reasons for his decision, including his relationships with defensive line coach Deke Adams, quality control analyst Kelvin Green and graduate assistant Tyrone Hopper.

"The brotherhood in the defensive line room is great," Madison said. "Coach Adams, Green, Hopp were always consistent while recruiting me and making me feel at home. In all, it was just a home feel. Also having plenty of dudes from Georgia helped me feel good about coming out here. In all, it was a great visit."

He had 75 tackles, 9 sacks, 10 tackles for loss, 17 quarterback hurries, 1 forced fumble, 2 pass deflections and 1 interception returned for a touchdown as a junior.

Madison is rated a 3-star prospect by 247Sports. The three other recruiting services have yet to rate him.

Defensive end Keiundre Johnson made his commitment public a few hours later following his official visit.

"The visit was amazing," said Johnson, who was one of eleven official visitors over the weekend. "It was way more than I expected. I loved it a lot."

Johnson, 6-3 and 245 pounds, of Terrell, Texas, had accumulated other scholarship offers from Texas, Texas A&M, SMU, Southern Cal, Oregon, Ole Miss, LSU, Florida State, Nebraska and other programs.

He officially visited SMU in May and was to visit Texas A&M later this month.

Johnson's relationship with defensive line coach Deke Adams and defensive quality control assistant Kelvin Green was key in his decision. He was hosted by freshman defensive lineman Charleston Collins and said he connected well with the players.

"I liked the people in Fayetteville," he said.

Johnson is excited to play for Adams.

"I like the way he uses ends on the edge," Johnson said. "I like the way the defense is. He's a great coach and he's easy to connect with."

He recorded 63 tackles, 19 tackles for loss, 10.5 sacks and 2 pass deflections and a safety in 10 games as a junior while wearing a cast on his left wrist after suffering a fracture in the first game of the season.

Johnson, who reports running 22.6 seconds in the 200 meters as a freshman, is a consensus 3-star prospect. Madison and Johnson are the Razorbacks' 11th and 12th commitments for the 2025 class.
