Charlie Weis and Kansas have landed another defensive talent from the JUCO ranks in Iowa Western CC safety Isaiah Johnson.

Johnson was one of many who visited Lawrence this past weekend and the visit proved successful, as Johnson commits to a team that is having great success early on finding JUCO talent to build it's program which is looking to make a splash in 2013.

At 6-1 210 pounds, Johnson collected eight interceptions this season, which tied for most in the nation. He also recorded 41 tackles and can run a 4.5 40 yard dash.

"I have committed to Kansas," Johnson told JCFootball.com. "The atmosphere there was great and I really liked the coaches a lot. I had a great time there last weekend and I just thought about ending the recruiting process, but I'm still going to take my visits that I have planned."

Johnson will be visiting New Mexico first on January 11, followed by Wyoming a week later and South Alabama on January 25th.

"I just need to make sure I find the right place for me," Johnson also told JCFootball.com. "I loved Kansas, but I don't have a lot to compare it to, so these visits will show me other things and I can make the right decision for me."

Best of all for the Jayhawks, because Johnson redshirted in 2011, he will have three years of eligibility after he earns his associates degree in May.
