Michael Johnson, 6-5, 265 pounds, was a three-year starter for Pine Forest High in Pensacola, Fla.
Johnson committed to Alabama in July 2004. He reports an excellent 3.8 grade point average and an score of 27 on the ACT.
"The coaching staff is just excellent. I really like them all. I felt like I needed to go ahead and get it out of the way before my senior season began," Johnson said after committing publicly."I like the overall history. They have a great fan following and I have always been an Alabama fan. It felt like home. It is a really good time to get into the program."
