It’s a legal matter, baby.

Sometimes momma doesn’t win.

Sedrick Johnson, a four-star receiver from Arp, Texas, originally sent a signed letter of intent to Iowa State on Feb. 6.

Last week, he sent another letter to Texas A&M.

The difference in the letters, according to Johnson’s high school coach, is that the first letter was signed by his father, the second by his mother.

Momma thinks she has special powers here. And she’s not happy about the NCAA. They don’t write. They don’t call.

On Sunday, a woman identifying herself as Johnson’s mother said her son’s football future remains in limbo.

“I can’t tell you,” Della Johnson said via phone when asked where her son would play. “I do not know that.”

Johnson’s mother went on to say no timetable has been set for when her son would make a decision, or when the matter will be resolved.

“Because Iowa State has not called here,” Della Johnson said, “and the NCAA has not called here.”

That could be because they’ve already made up their mind.

The NCAA has ruled that Arp senior Sedrick Johnson’s letter of intent with Iowa State is valid, Arp coach Dale Irwin said Friday.
Johnson signed with Iowa State last week to play football.

On Thursday, he signed and faxed a letter of intent to Texas A&M after a legal matter surfaced in regard to the Iowa State scholarship.

His mother asked for a waiver to void the Iowa State scholarship.
“He’s got to honor the first scholarship,” Irwin said.

Johnson (6-4, 195, receiver) orally committed to A&M in the fall, but changed his mind on national signing day.

Sounds like he’ll be one happy camper in Ames, Iowa.
