A 6-4 200 wide receiver coming off a season collecting 1,030 yards and 13 touchdowns is bound to get…
Blue chip WR could make decision soon
While offers are rolling in, Johnson is moving slowly with the recruiting process due mainly to his AAU basketball commitments this summer.
"I'm just playing a lot of basketball this summer and I haven't had a chance to visit many schools," Johnson explained. "I attended the Texas A&M basketball camp last month and I made it over to LSU a couple of weeks ago."
So what did the East Texan think of his trip to Baton Rouge, Louisiana?
"It was nice. The first thing I noticed was all those trophies in the office. It's a program with a winning tradition," Johnson said. "The facilities were great and I liked the coaches a lot. The receivers coach showed me around and I got to know him."
Could the big receiver see himself at LSU one day? "I think I could. LSU is one of my top schools," Johnson said. "The culture is a little different and the language isn't what we speak in Texas, but it's a good place with a winning track record in both football and basketball."
Another school that has stepped up its recruiting of the East Texan native is Michigan, and Johnson has taken notice recently.
"Michigan has come on recently. My cousin goes to law school there and tells me a lot about it," Johnson said. "I watched them growing and I know about the 100,000 at the Big House."
Rated No. 52 in Scout.com's latest Southwest Top 100 list, Johnson lists Arizona State, Texas A&M, LSU, Michigan and Nebraska as his top five schools. One of those five gets another opportunity to put its best foot forward this summer as Johnson will attend next week's inaugural Game Night camp on July 20 at Texas A&M.
The camp is by invitation and only the elite high school prospects are invited to this exclusive event.
"I'm driving down for the Game Night camp at Texas A&M on the 20th," Johnson said. "I'm really looking forward to it. A&M is one of my top schools and I know my mom would like me to go there. Kendall Wright (Pittsburg, TX) and a bunch of other guys I know will be there. It should be interesting."
While he's looking forward to having a good time and catching up with some old friends, he's also there to do some detailed research and plans to give the A&M program a very close look on his visit.
"I plan on evaluating the facilities and the infrastructure," Johnson said. "But I mainly want to hang out with the players and coaches and see if I feel comfortable and how they treat me."
Then Johnson added what could be potential big news for Aggie fans in the near future.
"I like A&M a lot. If they treat me right and it feels comfortable with everybody, I could just go ahead and commit," Johnson said. "I really don't know. We'll have to see."
Aggie fans will be hoping for that right vibe on July 20th.
