Rahshead Johnson continues to hear positive things from USC coach Steve Sarkisian and an offer could be on the way.
If that happens, the Long Beach (Calif.) Cabrillo four-star standout said the Trojans would move way up his list - and it would not be surprising at all if he committed.
"I talked to Sark," Johnson said. "He told me to be patient but he's going to make it happen. They're going to offer me soon, maybe in the next few days.

"It's really big right now. They're at the top of my list so I like that."
The 5-foot-11, 175-pound prospect who could play wide receiver or cornerback in college has had a busy few weeks in his recruitment.
He had been committed to Washington but after Sarkisian left for USC, Johnson opened things up. The Long Beach Cabrillo recruit was supposed to visit Nebraska last weekend but decided against it.
Washington State had emerged as a favorite and is still high on his list but Johnson said if an offer from USC comes the Trojans might be tough to beat. Many other programs continue to show interest but it sounds like Johnson wants to wait to hear from USC first.
It could be the perfect situation for Johnson, rated No. 141 in the 2014 class by Rivals.com. He knows the new USC coaches well since they were at Washington throughout his commitment. All he's waiting for now is an offer.
"I know pretty much all the coaches well," Johnson said. "Anytime I went up there I talked to all of them. I know those coaches really well."
