El Dorado (Kan.) Butler County C.C. four-star running back Beau Johnson thought he had his mind all made up. The 5-foot-11, 210-pounder took an official visit to Oklahoma State weekend and on the visit, he told the Cowboys that he was heading to Stillwater.
But on Monday the nation's No. 36 junior college player said he's now having some second thoughts about his college choice.
"Yeah, I told them I was coming this weekend, but when I got home I heard some rumors about their offensive coordinator leaving to take a job somewhere," Johnson, who is originally from Lilburn, Ga., said. "I'm still leaning toward OSU really strong, and even if he (Larry Fedora) leaves that's probably where I'm going to end up at.

"I just want to talk to the coaches and find out what's going to happen. I'm more curious more than anything."
His curiosity is likely to lead to an official OSU commit in the next 24 hours.
Johnson said he did meet with his recruiting coach, Joe DeForest, earlier this morning, but he said in the meeting with DeForest he didn't get a chance to talk to him about his concerns with the coaching staff.
"We mainly talked about academics and the enrollment process," Johnson said. "I'm hoping to talk to those guys again here in the next 24 hours. I should know something more here in the next few hours."
Johnson said he did enjoy his time on his visit to Stillwater. He said both he and teammate Maurice Gray really clicked with the OSU players and coaches.
"It went really good," he said. "I met a couple of the players, and we just hung out. My hosts took me bowling. I got a good vibe from everybody I was around. I really like coach Mike Gundy. He's a cool guy."
Johnson still has a scheduled official visit to Kansas set up for this weekend, but with an ice storm hitting most of Kansas classes at Butler County have already been canceled for tomorrow.
That means Johnson's finals will likely be pushed back and he wouldn't be able to make the visit to Lawrence because he has to take the tests to graduate.
