Since committing to Coach Monken and his staff back in July, he's remained fully on board with the Golden Eagles. Now, as signing day approaches, he's spending his winter months preparing for the next level.
"It has been great, lately I've just been working out and especially focusing on conditioning," Johnson told GoldenEaglePride.com.
"I'm just trying to stay in shape."
Johnson has stayed in regular contact with the coaches at Southern Miss.
"I've been speaking with Coach Meadows a bunch and also Coach Woz came to the school and spoke with me last week."
Johnson is expected, along with a host of other commits and prospects, to take a visit to Southern Miss this upcoming weekend.
"I'm eager to get to know some of the guys better and to further familiarize myself with the campus," he said.
Johnson says he remains fully committed to Southern Miss and can't wait for his career in the black and gold. We'll have a follow up with Johnson and other prospects after next weekend.
