Rahshead Johnson de-committed from Washington on Wednesday afternoon. Then he committed again.
The Long Beach (Calif.) Cabrillo four-star receiver chalks the whole episode up to confusion since he was under the impression that he might not be able to get on the field early with the Huskies.
After talking with the Washington coaches, everything has been settled. That conversation prompted his recommitment and it saved the Huskies more grief after fellow four-star receiver Erik Brown flipped his commitment from Washington to Cal earlier in the day.

"The coaches just called me," Johnson said. "I was confused. I thought I wasn't going to be able to play early."
How that thought entered Johnson's head is unknown but it happened and the Long Beach Cabrillo standout got spooked.
The 5-foot-11, 175-pound four-star who's rated as the No. 21 wide receiver in the 2014 class by Rivals.com has settled once again after chatting with Washington coach Steve Sarkisian and being reassured that the plan is still in place for him to get the opportunity to see time as a freshman.
"The head coach told me I have a great shot (to play early)," Johnson said.
The four-star will be joining an impressive group of Southern California recruits including Darren Gardenhire and Denzel Fisher on a visit to Washington State this weekend.
Prior to his de-commitment on Wednesday that lasted less than an afternoon, Johnson had been committed to the Huskies since his junior year.
