Andrew Johnson, the No. 44 cornerback in the nation, backed out of a commitment to Ole Miss Wednesday morning. Now, the star from Miami (FL) Southridge is looking for a new school. Is Louisville coach Charlie Strong on the verge of landing another stud 2011 prospect from south Florida?

Andrew Johnson, the No. 44 cornerback in the nation, backed out of a commitment to Ole Miss Wednesday morning.

Now, the star from Miami (FL) Southridge is looking for a new school.

Louisville could be that school.

Charlie Strong's Cardinals, who won beat Southern Miss, 31-28, in the St. Petersburg's Beef O'Brady Bowl Tuesday night, are riding a hot streak lately.

Earlier this week, Louisville received a commitment from five-star Miami quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and his three-star teammate Eli Rogers. Now, it looks like Johnson, a three-star cornerback, could be the next south Florida standout headed Strong's way.

Though Johnson verbally committed to Ole Miss last summer, he made official visits recently to Louisville and West Virginia. He could make a decision soon about his future.

Johnson's teammate, Gerod Holliman, also back out of a commitment to Ole Miss this morning. Holliman is expected to announce his college choice Jan. 8 at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Game. Louisville, West Virginia, and Miami are the schools on his list.
