"My verbal commitment with Texas A&M is a solid one, but it is not a definite one just yet," said Johnson. "I would say it is about 80%."


The 20 percent difference in Johnson's verbal commitment to Texas A&M is what has's 4-Star wide receiver's phone ringing on a daily basis.


"I speak with coaches from other schools every week," said Johnson. "Coach [D.J.] McCarthy from LSU is always checking up on me as well as coaches from Arizona St, Michigan, TCU and Oklahoma St. I like hearing from them too because it shows that they still care about me even though I didn't officially commit to their school. And if in the end I would decide not to go to Texas A&M I would remember the other schools that stuck by my side during the entire time."


What do the Aggie coaches think of Johnson and his status?


"The coaches from Texas A&M definitely do not like the idea of me speaking with other coaches from different schools, but they are very understanding to the situation," Johnson added.


Johnson said he does have a certain game in mind that he would like to attend for a visit, but transportation may prevent it from happening.


"I would really like to go to the LSU vs. Florida game in Baton Rouge," he stated. "I am trying to get a ride to the game though. I am going to check with my mom and see how her schedule looks and see if we could possibly make the trip.


"I watched LSU play Mississippi St. a few weeks back," Johnson continued. "I thought they moved the ball pretty good. I liked what I saw."


Like the LSU football team, the Arp High School product is a terror on the football field as well. As a junior last season, Johnson caught 38 passes for over 1,030 yards and 13 touchdowns. This season should turn out to be just as good for Johnson.


"Last week I had over 100 yards receiving with 1 touchdown reception," Johnson said. "That was the first game this season that I had over 100 yards receiving.


"I am relentless on the field," Johnson continued. "I don't care where the ball is because I am going to catch it and injuries do not affect me."


Note: Johnson maintained a 2.8 GPA last school year and scored a 16 on the ACT. The talented student athlete said he took the ACT again this month and is currently waiting to receive his test results.
