Johnson visits Tide, adds Tigers offer

Warren Easton (New Orleans) 2015 WR Tyron Johnson talks about this month's Alabama visit, as well as his Clemson offer, inside with FOXSportsNEXT.com.

Tyron Johnson traveled to Tuscaloosa two weeks ago.

"It was my first visit to Alabama," the sophomore said. "I talked with Coach (Burton) Burns. He really likes what I'm doing and told me to keep working on my craft. He said I could possibly earn a starting job as a freshman."

Johnson enjoyed watching what he described as a "fast-paced practice."

The 6-2, 190-pounder is up to three offers after Clemson pulled the trigger.

"They had talked about how much they liked me before they offered," said Johnson, who also lists Texas Tech and San Diego State on his offer sheet. "I've talked to Coach (Chad) Morris.

"They saw my highlight tape and were interested, so they called my coach and told him they were offering. I know Clemson is a good school with a great offense. They beat LSU last year in the bowl game. I like them."

Johnson is wide-open.

"I like every school," he said. "Alabama, Mississippi State and Texas A&M could be offering soon. Florida State was at school today.

"My coach told me he talked to Mississippi State. They've been trying to get in touch with me. I've been in contact with A&M since my freshman year when they reached out to me while recruiting Edward Williams."

Johnson says his family members are LSU fans.

He remains undecided about summer camp destinations, adding that it's going to be "difficult" to eventually choose one school.
