A couple of the Wildcats' defensive backs made a distinct impression on Johnson over the weekend.
"Rob Golden was my host, but you could say that it was both him and (fellow New Orleans-area native) Jonathan McKnight hosting me," Johnson said. "They were talking about what I could bring to the table; how I could make a big impact there and that I could play as a freshman.
"I had never met Jonathan McKnight (John Curtis Christian alum) but I had heard about him."
Where do things stand today with Johnson's recruitment?
"Right now, Arizona is number one," he said. "I'm taking a visit to Southern Miss on Friday, and then I might visit either Pittsburgh or Minnesota the following week. I'm not sure about that last visit. I'm just taking things day-by-day for now."
Johnson orginally committed to Southern Miss, and there's still a chance that he could sign with the Eagles next month.
