Johnson is taking his time

Norfolk (Va.) Booker T. Washington safety Rodney Johnson landed his first BCS offer over the summer. With the season back in swing, is the 6-foot-1, 175-pounder addressing recruiting?
"I'm thinking about visits but I just don't know when," he said. "With the classes I've got during the school year, I'm pretty busy. When I can take a visit, I will, but I have nothing planned yet. I'm basically preparing myself for school, making sure I'm doing everything right."
Johnson, who is claiming offers from West Virginia, Furman, Old Dominion, Richmond and Hampton, believes that he will likely take his visits after his season.
With his visits on the backburner, Johnson is still completely open. However, he knows he will be looking for a few important things when he does begin to take visits again.
"As far as recruiting goes, any school that has offered me is high on my list," he said. "When I start taking visits, I want to go look at the environment to see what it's like, the coaching situation and the diverse culture. I want to see how things go for me and if the area is a good fit for me. I want to know I'll feel good somewhere."
For now Johnson is focused on the season where he has helped Booker T. Washington to a 2-1 record. He has posted one interception and six pass breakups to this point.
"I think I've been doing pretty well," he said. "I've been pulling it together and things are flowing. I've been battling a few minor injuries and playing through it. I am seeing an improvement in my game. I'm just learning how to be more focused and relaxed, confident with everything."
