The massive Peach State product was awarded with his first two scholarship offers last week from Michigan State and Mississippi State. While it might of caught Johnson by surprise, the defensive lineman received another scholarship late Saturday night.
"Coach (Eric) Mathies (defensive line) just said that he wants me to visit," Johnson said. "He then said that he wants me to play for him and said that I have an offer now. It was very abrupt."
Johnson admits that he's unfamiliar with Taggart and the Bulls.
"No, sir, I don't, but now I will look into the program."
After a strong junior campaign, in which he amassed 65 tackles, 12 tackles for loss and three sacks, the Cedar Grove standout is also receiving interest from Alabama, Wisconsin, North Carolina State and Arkansas.
"I have fast hands and my motor is amazing," Johnson said. "I can read an offense easily as well."
Along with a great education, the chance to play early will be very important for Johnson when he selects his future school.
"I like schools with great education and a chance to play early."
