RECRUITING: Big Herman thinking things over

The latest on the recruitment of Denton, Texas OL Herman Johnson following his visit to LSU.

Deton, Texas offensive lineman Herman Johnson has basically shut down all communication with everybody outside of his own coach, friends and a couple of collegiate coaches.

Fortunately, one of those coaches are from the University of Oklahoma. Johnson met with OU today at his high school and from all indications that meeting went well. However, I also think it is safe to say that it was nothing earth-shattering, but it was a good, solid meeting.

At this point Johnson is tired of the recruiting process and he is certainly tired of answering questions about it. He is expected to meet with coaches from LSU and Oklahoma State over the next two days at this school, but from this point on his mother has said that she wants no more coaches to come by the house.

One thing for sure is that Johnson did not commit to LSU on his recent visit and he says the visit was OK. He says it was like the others so it appers that he is still going to have a very tough decision to make.

Johnson has indicated he and his mom are going to try to come up with a decision. There is nothing that says that he will, but they are going to seriously talk things over this weekend.

OU and LSU still appear to be his top two choices with OSU and Houston trying hard to get into the mix, but they are going to be to late to be a serious contender at this point.

Where Herman is going is totally a guess at this point, because his coach doesn't even know where he is going. At this point it is safe to say that big Herman himself doesn't know where he is going.
