Collin Johnson landed major offers this offseason, he committed to Texas and he emerged as one of the top wide receivers in the 2016 class.
It was a busy few months and now the San Jose (Calif.) Valley Christian standout is excited to just get back to playing football games.
"We're really good," Johnson said. "We're trying to get everything pieced together defensively and offensively as well. Our run game is really good. We have a lot of running backs. Valley is known for their running and everything. We have a couple new plays to get me the ball so that will be really cool.
"I'm looking forward to (the season) a lot. All that stuff going on with recruiting you can really get distracted. I have to realize why all this is happening and I have to take care of my business during the season."
Johnson, rated as the sixth-best wide receiver and the No. 39 prospect in the 2016 class by Rivals.com, is not planning any unofficial visits this season except for one to Texas. No dates have been finalized yet but the four-star definitely wants to take a trip to Austin in the coming months to see a game.
Johnson's sister is a 2017 basketball prospect who also wants to check out the Longhorns.
"We're trying to go to a game at Texas definitely," Johnson said. "We just have to figure out a time that fits in our schedule. My sister wants to check out the basketball program so that would be cool if she could get a scholarship and my whole family is in burnt orange."
Arizona, Oregon State, Michigan State, UCLA, Stanford and others continue to pursue the 2016 prospect but Johnson said his commitment to the Longhorns is firm. He likes what coach Charlie Strong is doing so far with the program and at this point he's not looking at other options.
"There are still a couple schools mainly around the area trying to keep me in California," Johnson said. "Nothing can really beat Texas right now. I'm strong in my commitment."
