The 2010 class is filling up fast, especially along the defensive line. Donovan Johnson is the 6th defensive lineman to verbally commit to the Hawkeyes (maybe we'll actually see a rotation some time in the future!). He is a 3-star by Rivals and 1-star by Scout, defensive tackle from Arlington, Texas and committed after visiting Iowa City for the homecoming victory over Michigan.

High School:
Johnson plays for the Martin Warrior who are 4-3 on the year. For the Warriors Johnson plays both on the offensive and defensive lines. The only video I saw of him was on ESPN and just showed him playing offense. He looked pretty quick and did a nice job blocking, so I hope that can translate to success on the other side of the ball.

One last hard is it to spell his name? Scout consistently uses Donovan, but Rivals has Donavan and Donovan on the same page! ESPN has the O. Looking at the roster from his high school's site, it looks like the conventional spelling, Donovan is correct.
