"I don't have any offers," said Eddie Johnson. "I am receiving interest from Alabama, Auburn and Mississippi State so far. I went to Auburn's spring practice during my spring break. I plan on attending Alabama's A-Day game."
Johnson talked more about the unofficial visit to Auburn.
"The visit was good," he said. "I had gone up there during the week. We watched them practice. We talked coach Chizik. Coach Chizik asked about out football program and asked if I really wanted to play football in college.
"I liked the visit. It was good. The coaches seem down-to-earth and cool. That seems like a place where I could see myself. All colleges are same. You get your degree. I guess with Auburn it's like they make you feel at home. They are willing to adapt to you more than you adapt to them."
Johnson has not visited Alabama, but the Tide is at the top of his list.
"Alabama is my No. 1 school, and Auburn is No. 2," Johnson said. "Alabama is a nice school. You can tell they put a lot of money in the program. They have an Engineering program I like. That's what I want to major in college."
Johnson plays on both sides of the ball, but expects to play linebacker on the next level. The 6-foot-1.5, 219-pound prospect recorded more than 70 tackles during his junior season. He recognizes his strengths and areas to improve during the off-season.
"I am an all-around linebacker," he said. "I can stop the run or go in coverage. I have the speed of a DB. I can learn some new moves and learn to get off blocks."
