Johnson has a tremendous upside and could play on either side of the ball at the next level. Most college recruiters feel Johnson will be a defensive tackle in the future.
"I don't have any offers yet," said Tim Johnson. "Michigan said they are close to offering but I haven't gotten anything in writing yet.
"I got calls in May from Illinois, Michigan, Nebraska, Tennessee, Indiana and Western Michigan.
"My favorites are Illinois, Florida, Ohio State, Michigan State, Indiana and Michigan."
Johnson says he'll be camping at Illinois this summer.
