Busy week for Johnson

Rahshead Johnson has had a busy couple weeks and it could get even more interesting from here.
To review, the four-star prospect from Long Beach (Calif.) Cabrillo had been committed to Washington, de-committed from the Huskies for a few hours, then re-committed only to open his recruitment up again after coach Steve Sarkisian left for USC.
With Boise State coach Chris Petersen taking the Washington job Friday morning, Johnson said he no longer has interest in that program and will only look at others.
"No interest in them," Johnson said. "I have other options."
One of those other options could very well be USC. The four-star said he has already talked with Sarkisian and the new USC coach told Johnson he wants him to play for the Trojans. It's unclear whether a committable offer is there yet but Johnson said he likes what he hears.
"I've heard from Sark already," Johnson said. "He says he wants me at SC and we're going to make it happen."
That is a very interesting development for Johnson, who could play wide receiver or defensive back in college.
Washington State is still considered a frontrunner because the Long Beach Cabrillo recruit had an outstanding visit there in recent weeks and he has plenty of friends on the team.
Nebraska, Arizona State, Utah, Colorado and Arizona are also being considered. Johnson was supposed to visit with the Huskers this weekend but that trip has been postponed until January at the earliest.
"The coach wanted me to come next week to be with other recruits and go to the big basketball game," Johnson said. "Maybe I'll take the Nebraska trip in January."
