Johnson hung out with a couple of members from last year's recruiting class while in Austin.
Kindle and Jones were the prize of the Longhorns' 2006 class. Both were five-star recruits and were ranked number one overall at their respective positions.
Johnson also talked to several members of the Longhorn coaching staff, including Duane Akina and running backs coach Ken Rucker.
"I talked to Coach Akina and Coach Rucker," Johnson said. "They asked how I was doing and about my grades."
Johnson came away very impressed with the university and the changes they have made in the last few months.
"I saw a lot of good things," Johnson said. "They have changed a lot of stuff. The inside of the facilities were amazing."
Since we last talked to Johnson, he has picked up a number of scholarship offers. He already has more offers than most seniors and many more are sure to follow.
Johnson doesn't want to rush the recruiting process. He wants to make sure that his commitment is a solid one.
"It's not going to be a problem. I would consider it (committing early), but I don't want to make a decision and have to change it. I just want to take it safe and slow."
Gilmer High School is undefeated right now, thanks in large part to the performance of this great running back. In two games, Johnson has already compiled six touchdowns. He talked about his performance in the opening game of the season.
"We struggled early. We threw and interception on our first series," Johnson said. "About our third or forth series, they threw me a pass and I scored the first touchdown of the year. I ended up with three touchdowns thanks to the offensive line. After that, we all started clicking together. I've been a big success on our team so far this year.
Johnson has the chance to be something special on the next level. This kid could be the next great running back from the Lone Star State.
