The final week without football in 2014 in the Lone Star State saw several pieces of recruiting news occur during the past several days.

He chose the Tar Heels over offers from the Sooners, Arkansas, Colorado State, Louisiana Tech, Louisville, Maryland, Nebraska, TCU, Texas Tech, and Tulsa. Johnson added his latest offer Thursday from Wisconsin.

The 2014 Texas high school football season starts Thursday night. Programs across the Lone Star State will play Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in what should be an entertaining kickoff weekend.
