"It was nice," Johnson said. "It actually got pretty boring since they were beating them so bad."
Johnson (5-11, 165, 4.4) has not been offered a scholarship by Ohio State.
"I am going to take official visits at some points to Stanford and Illinois, and I want to take one to Michigan as well," Johnson said. "And I might set up an official visit to Ohio State the weekend of the Michigan game."
Johnson's high school team – Southern University Laboratory – is 6-3 and has already qualified for the Louisiana state playoffs, which begin next week.
Johnson is playing running back this year and reports statistics of 60 carries for 500 yards and 10 touchdowns. He also has returned two punts for touchdowns and has intercepted three passes on defense as a cornerback.
"They really don't throw my way much – most teams like to run the ball around here," he said. "And I think I would have more punt return touchdowns if they kicked the ball to me more."
Johnson says his contact at OSU is recruiting coordinator John Peterson. He says the Buckeyes are looking at him as a cornerback.
Johnson reports a 2.9 core GPA and scored an 18 on the ACT.
"I am going to retake the ACT, but my school counselors think I've already qualified. But I still want to bring up my score."
