The 6-1, 175 pound prospect had a busy week as Coral Springs High played two games due to Hurricane Katrina. "Yeah, we had two games last week. We won the first and lost the second," said Johnson.

"I had four catches for 105 yards and one touchdown on Monday. I had four catches for 33 yards in the second game."

Johnson, who is receiving strong interest from Georgia during the past few weeks, says that Saturday night's win over Texas A&M left quite an impression on him and his family.

When asked how firm his commitment is to Clemson as of Sunday evening, Johnson responded, "It's strong, real strong. The game last night helped a lot. Me and my mom watched the game together. It was great.

"I watched it on television. I was nervous at the end. It was like I was in the game."

Johnson has also made plans for an unofficial visit to Clemson. "I haven't been to any games yet but I am coming up to Clemson on September 17 for the Miami game," he said.

Clemson recruiting coordinator David Blackwell continues to stay in close touch with talented wide out.

"I got a call from Coach Blackwell this week," Johnson said. "He talked about the preparing for the game (against Texas A&M). He told me how practices were going. It was a real good conversation. I think he was excited I was coming up for the Miami game."
