Johnson enjoys Texas camp

Collin Johnson loved his recent trip to Texas for summer camp and he said if anything his commitment has gotten even stronger the more times he's visited Austin.
This most recent trip was especially important for the 2016 wide receiver from San Jose (Calif.) Valley Christian because he had ample time to work with the new coaching staff and he absolutely loved it.
The competition was high, the coaches were excited and Johnson said it was a great environment. He's been committed along with his brother, Kirk, since mid-April and the Longhorns are in great shape in his recruitment.
"It was cool," Johnson said. "They have some really good athletes over there and I competed with a lot of the top athletes on the West Coast but going down there was definitely a cool experience.
"I definitely did my thing down there, too. I still have stuff to work on but I think I did pretty well and I'm progressing in my game."
Working with the coaches had to be a highlight for Johnson, a 6-foot-5, 193-pound prospect who has also been offered by Arizona State, Cal, Colorado State, Michigan, Oregon State, Rutgers, TCU, USC and Utah so far.
"They were really hyped up," Johnson said of the coaching staff. "When the defense made a big play the DBs would be all up in your face. The coaches would be all up in there, too. That's cool. I love competing so it's just positive energy down there and it was cool working with them."
USC has tried to make in-roads with Johnson and the 2016 receiver said plenty of Big 10 schools have started to send mail but his commitment is firm. Especially after the camp visit, Johnson said Texas is the place for him.
"It made me more confident in my commitment," Johnson said. "Every time I go down there I just like the place more.
"It's been a quiet time in recruiting. I still get some letters from Nebraska, Penn State, Michigan State, Ohio State, so I'm still getting a couple schools. It's backed off a little bit but I still think I'll get a lot of looks. I just have to stay firm if that's what I believe."
