Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey linebacker Mark Johnson, as of late Monday night, was expecting to make an official visit to Ohio State this weekend to see the Buckeyes take on Iowa.
"I'm supposed to make an official visit to Ohio State this Saturday," Johnson said on Monday night. "(Ohio State assistant) Coach Fickell is supposed to call and get it set up.
"I'm going to the Ohio State-Iowa game. I've never been to an Ohio State game. I'm looking forward to it. I want to see the atmosphere and the school. The fans are hyped there.
"Ohio State's a big college and I want to go to a big college. They play great football. They put out great linebackers and great education."
As much as Johnson is looking forward to his trip to Columbus, Ohio State is certainly not his only option.
"I'm looking at Ohio State, LSU, Miami, Florida, Cal, and USC," Johnson said. "That's pretty much it. All of them except USC have offered."
When asked if he has a favorite, Johnson said, "Ohio State, LSU, Florida, and Miami are my favorites."
