Commitment Update: Sam Johnson

Sam Johnson (LB, St.Louis, MO) -'s # 34 ranked prospect from the Midwest states committed to Ole Miss back on May 15th after considering scholarship offers from Minnesota, Michigan State, Kansas, Louisville, Missouri, and Mississippi. We called to get a progress report on how his season is going and his current commitment status.

The following information was revealed during our interview with Sam Johnson:

How is your season going? "We have been doing pretty good. We are ranked #5 in the State now. I missed our 4th and 5th game, but I am back healthy now."

What type of injury did you sustain? "I do not know. It is nothing serious. Just an (ankle) turnover."

Who did you face Friday? "We played Parkview North last. We won 35-13. They did not score on our staring defense. They only had one first down the whole first half. I had a 100 and something yards rushing, 15 tackles, 1 fumble recovery, and 1 pass deflection."

Do you know your season stats? "All I know is that I am averaging over 130 rushing yards a game and 15 tackles a game. I do not know the rest of my stats."

Have you had a chance to set up your visit to Ole Miss? "I do not even know when I am going to visit. It all depends on how far we go in the playoffs and all. I am going to worry about the recruiting stuff when I finish the season strong. We finish in like 4 or 5 weeks, then I can go on my visit to Ole Miss. Right now, I am just trying to finish on a high note."

When was the last time you spoke to someone from Ole Miss? "Last week sometime."

Who is calling you for Ole Miss? "Coach Hughes was calling me at first but Coaches Slocum and Orgeron have been calling me lately."

Do you still feel solid with your commitment to Ole Miss? "Yea, as long as they still want me (laugh), I am coming."
