Hialeah (Fla.) Champagnat Catholic defensive back Michael Johnson committed to Louisville in March, but that hasn't stopped other programs from recruiting the three-star defensive back.
"Next month I'm going to take a trip to Alabama for their summer camp," said Johnson. "Then we are going to check out Georgia as part of a summer tour with some players and coaches with a stop at LSU. It will be my first time to Athens and I want to see what kind of academics they have to offer. Everyone has great facilities, but I need to know if they have everything else I'm looking for."

Louisville appears to be holding firm with Johnson's verbal pledge. Current Cardinals quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has a lot to do with it. Johnson says he and Bridgewater are close and he is a big reason why he committed.
"Teddy and I are from the same neighborhood. I know Keith Brown well too. I would love to play with "Bam" (Brown) when Louisville plays Miami in their first game in the ACC in 2014," stated Johnson.
His interest in Indiana and LSU seems to be legit.
"With Indiana they have one of the best business programs and that's what I want to major in," cited Johnson. "LSU has a great defense and system. Their defensive backs ball out."
Some schools are looking at Johnson and both safety positions. However, LSU told him he could play nickel corner as a freshman.
He showed superb cornerback skills at the Rivals Camp Series presented by Under Armour in Miami back in March as he was able to lock up a variety of receivers on an island in 1-on-1's.
