Johnson makes his choice

One of the top JUCO safeties this year was Iowa Western's Isaiah Johnson (6-1, 210). He tied for the lead nationally with eight interceptions while also racking up 41 tackles. That productivity and the fact he has three years of eligibility left had schools clamoring to get him to visit and this past weekend he visited Kansas and decided today to commit to the Jayhawks...

"I have committed to Kansas," an excited Johnson told JCFootball.com. "The atmosphere there was great and I really liked the coaches a lot. I had a great time there last weekend and I just thought about ending the recruiting process, but I'm still going to take my visits that I have planned."

Those visits include New Mexico on January 11th, Wyoming on January 18th and South Alabama on January 25th.

"I just need to make sure I find the right place for me," Johnson said. "I loved Kansas, but I don't have a lot to compare it to, so these visits will show me other things and I can make the right decision for me."

Johnson tied for the lead nationally with eight interceptions while also racking up 41 tackles.

He redshirted in 2011, so once he gets his AA degree in May he will have three years to play three wherever he ends up.
