Johnson heading out of Lincoln

After talking to Head Coach for Arlington (Texas) Martin, Bob Wager, one of his players has recently pulled in some offers and interest because of some diversification. Up to his senior year, Donovan Johnson has really just played on offense. A school the size of Martin doesn't need to play their player's both ways, but playing Johnson on defense has opened some eyes, even his own.

The first thing you would have to know about Donovan Johnson is that aside from obviously being a heck of a defensive lineman, he's also very even keel. That means he doesn't get too high or too low over anything.

That can serve you well on visits, unofficial or otherwise, because it helps keep things in perspective.

Because of the tight schedule for camp Johnson said that while he got to meet a few current Huskers in passing, he really didn't get a chance to talk to anyone right now. But he also said that he would down the road. Nebraska now finds itself firmly entrenched on his list of potential official visits, joining Kansas State and TCU. Donovan said that he'll be visiting TCU when he gets back home to Texas, and he plans to camp at UTEP this weekend.

As for leaders he says he has none. The Husker visit ranked high, but Donovan is still resolute in not making his decision until after his official visits are done or his senior season is over, whichever comes first. He'll make sure it's right. "I'm just checking them out with my dad just to see what they are about and how they might fit me," he said. "I still have a few places to go."

One other place might be Purdue, a school which hasn't offered as of yet, but because of their defensive play Johnson said he's interested in potentially taking a trip there.

Donovan has offers from Nebraska, Kansas State, Iowa State, UTEP, TCU, UNLV and New Mexico, amongst others.
