Things may not be settled for Brenham (Texas) Blinn College running back James Johnson who gave his verbal commitment to Texas A&M just a little over a week ago.
It appears that the 5-foot-11, 200-pound four-star Johnson was all set for Kansas State before head coach Bill Snyder had retired. Blinn coach Allen Johnson says K-State hasn't left Johnson's mind.
"I still think James is looking hard at Kansas State," Coach Johnson said. "I don't know if it's a done deal just yet. When he found out about the coaching situation at K-State, he decided to commit."
Coach Johnson says that it may come down to who is hired for the position.
"It depends on who gets the job as the head coach," Coach Allen Johnson said about his running back's plans. "I just know he's waiting to see what happens there first."
There has not been an official visit date set up for Kansas State by Johnson. The star running back is not the only top prospect at Blinn.
The 6-foot-4, 210-pound Blinn quarterback Joe Danna could certainly be called a diamond in the rough because he is starting to emerge as a recruiting target for several schools.
Coach Johnson has stated that Wyoming now has come through with an offer for Danna. Marshall and SMU are giving him looks, but Danna's desire to stay close to home may give the edge to the Mustangs.
"He took a trip to SMU for their last home game and liked what he saw," Johnson said. "He's going this weekend to Wyoming now that they've offered. I know he wants to stay in Texas, so if SMU offers, I'm pretty sure he may take it."
