Johnson high on Missouri

Arp (TX) WR Sedrick Johnson has been committed to the Texas A&M Aggies in July, but over the past few weeks, things may not be nearly as solid as they once were. Johnson admitted that he had not heard from the A&M coaching staff in several weeks, but a mid-week talk with the coaches did ease his mind to some degree.

Johnson said the past few weeks have been busy for him, but that while everything is going on, he has just been trying to take it all in. Over the past month, Johnson has been talking with several schools about their situations.

Not only has Johnson been talking with the schools, but has seen most of them visit him in Arp. The visits have been fun and Johnson said that in the next week, another important visitor will be coming to see him.

Johnson said the past few weeks talking to the coach from Missouri had been a lot of fun because the two had really hit it off. The visit went well for the two and while they had talked discussed when Johnson could see Columbia for himself.

For Johnson, the number 29, the Tigers became more and more interesting to him as the season went on. Johnson added that when he talked with coach Eberflus, he talked more and more about how he would fit into the Tigers' spread attack.

The next three weeks will be the final opportunities for recruits to take official visits and Johnson is no different. Over the next weekends, Johnson will visit three Big 12 schools to help him make his final decision.

With his commitment to the Aggies standing for such a long time, Johnson admitted it was strange looking at other schools, but he had to make sure he made the right decision. Right now, Johnson added, he saw all the schools pretty evenly and it would make the decision that much more challenging.

Johnson said that he would have his final answer on signing day and that it would be a relief to finally have his decision out of the way. Although he wasn't sure, he said that he would figure out the best way to make the announcement.
