TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) University of Arizona recruit My-King Johnson is set to become the first active openly gay scholarship player in major-college football history.
"I do feel like when I say that (I'm gay), it can put a target on my back. But whatever," Johnson told The Arizona Daily Star (http://bit.ly/2lHRRAC ) for a story Saturday.
The 6-foot-4, 225-pound defensive end starred at Tempe High School. He signed with the home-state Wildcats after verbally committing to Pac-12 Conference rival UCLA.
