Johnson: Texas might be tough to beat

Collin Johnson recently visited Texas and he has to admit something: No matter what happens in his recruitment the Longhorns might be tough to top.
The 2016 wide receiver from San Jose (Calif.) Valley Christian said last weekend at the Pylon Sports 7on7 in Las Vegas that Texas thoroughly impressed him and his brother, Kirk, during their trip. Their father, Johnnie, played for the Longhorns.
"Right now that's going to be hard to beat definitely," Johnson said. "They have so much to offer. I want to go see what other schools have to offer so I have a fair view of what my top couple schools will be.
"I like the rules they have at Texas and how a big thing there is discipline. The big feel there is the team and not the individuals. That's what it takes to win championships so I like that a lot."
So far, the 6-foot-5, 193-pound prospect has been offered by Cal, Colorado State, TCU and Texas.
There are numerous programs getting involved with Johnson, who said UCLA, USC, Utah, Michigan State and Penn State have reached out the most recently.
"I have a couple schools in there with high interest level," Johnson said.
Texas is no doubt the favorite at this point but more visits are coming up for the 2016 wide receiver who was one of the top prospects at the RCS Northern California in recent weeks.
The San Jose Valley Christian standout is visiting UCLA and USC in the next couple weeks and will also see Arizona and Arizona State soon.
