Johnson thinking WVU and Big Ten

Youngstown (Ohio) Cardinal Mooney standout Derrell Johnson is back in action after recovering from a fractured fibia.
Cardinal Mooney is now 10-2 and headed for the third round of the state playoffs after Johnson led Mooney to a 28-9 win over Akron Manchester over the weekend. Johnson threw for 100 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 100 and two scores.
However Johnson expects to move to wide receiver in college.
"I haven't set up any visits yet," Johnson said. "I'll wait till after the season."
Who is Johnson thinking about?
"West Virginia, Ohio State, Penn State, and a few others," he said.
Johnson has a number of scholarship offers to also think about.
"North Carolina, West Virginia, Cincinnati, Purdue, Iowa, and Akron have offered," he said. "West Virginia is probably my favorite. I like their style of play."
The 6-foot-2 and 185-pound Johnson is the No. 46 prospect in the state of Ohio in the Rivals.com player rankings.
