FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.- Hammond (La,) offensive line prospect Rishaw Johnson is committed to Ole Miss, but plans to take official visits to Florida State and LSU. Following workouts Sunday for the inaugural Offense-Defense All-American Bowl, however, Johnson talked about the strength of his commitment to the Rebels.
"I don't really know what they can do (to change my mind)," Johnson said. "But it's going to take a lot."
The visit to Tallahassee is scheduled for Jan. 12 and the trip to Baton Rouge is slated for Jan. 19. Johnson camped at both schools and impressed both staffs enough to garner scholarship offers.
"I hear from both every week," he said.
He already took his visit to Ole Miss in December.
"My Ole Miss visit went real well," he said. "I liked the coaching staff and I liked everything about Oxford."
Johnson is playing left guard for the West squad at the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl, which kicks off at 7 p.m. Thursday and will be televised live by ESPNU. Rivals.com is the official selection partner for the game.
"It's been pretty intense so far," he said. "Our first practice started off kind of slow, but it really picked up in the afternoon practice. I did good today. I've never played the left side of the line."
Johnson is a high (5.7) three-star rated prospect by Rivals.com.
