Recruiting: Johnson Remains Solid For Texas

The fleet wide receiver from Champaign Centennial is anxious to arrive in Austin.

Johnson was asked about the end of their season.

"We finished at 8-3 and was defeated by Oaklawn Richards in the second round," Johnson said. "They went on to play in the state finals."

Marquis finished the season with 41 receptions for 970 yards and 11 touchdowns. He was asked how basketball is now going.

"Pretty good," he continued. "I've averaging around twenty points per game. I'm playing swing, you know, small forward, ‘two' guard and some point."

As an early pledge to Texas, is he continuing to receive phone calls from other schools?"

"I was at the beginning," Marquis said. "Washington and the Big Ten schools were calling, but not much anymore."

Still enthusiastic about signing with Texas?

"I certainly am," he said without hesitation. "I'm happy with my decision and can't wait to get down there."

Johnson will be one of the Top National Prospects playing in the U.S. Army Bowl in San Antonio at the AlamoDome on January 5th.
