"I am still 100% solid with my commitment to Ole Miss," added Rishaw Johnson. "Their coaching staff is great, and it is a great opportunity for me to play early. I just like everything about Ole Miss."
Johnson remains firm with his commitment; he will check out LSU this weekend and
FSU the following weekend.
"I was suppose to go to FSU this weekend,
but I did not make it. They had too many people coming in on their visits. They
wanted me coming in when there were less recruits in town. I will probably go
on February 2nd. I am going to LSU this weekend."
What does Ole Miss
say about Rishaw taking these visits?
"Coach Orgeron (at Ole Miss)
is not complaining. He wants to make sure I am making the right decision, but

I just want to see how well I fit in with their players."
visits lined up this week?
"Coach Frank (from Ole Miss) is going to
come over. That is it so far."
Johnson was selected to the All-American
bowl in Florida this month and dominated his defenders during the game, but what
impressed most observers was not what he did during the game, but what he did
before a practice.
"It was raining real hard, so we practiced inside
a gym. We were shooting hoops before practice started, and one of the announcers
for the game said I could not dunk the ball. I was like, are you crazy, so I dunked
it standing flat footed. Everybody started hollering. They couldn't believe somebody
my size could get up like that. I still did not see what the big deal was. I have
been dunking the ball flat footed since I was 15."
