Ponca City, Okla., running back Josh Johnson did all he could do to help his team win in the state playoffs, however, a first-round date against state power Muskogee – a team loaded with at least five Division I prospects – ended his season with a loud thud. The good news is that Johnson was explosive as ever all throughout the year.
"Through the whole year I feel like I played really good," he said. "I think I lived up to the expectations for me. I think I had more than 2,000 yards and 24 touchdowns for the year."
Johnson, who is 5-foot-10 and 204 pounds, said he's starting to narrow down his focus on two teams.

"I just hear from Tulsa and Iowa State," he said. "Iowa State is the only school I have an offer from. I'm still planning on going to Iowa State on December 9. I am probably going to take a visit to Tulsa some time, too. I think they're talking about offering me a scholarship."
Johnson, recruited by ISU assistant Barney Cotton, said the Cyclones are his top team.
"I just like their style of play and I feel like I would fit in good up there with them," Johnson said. "I like the coaches I've talked to and I feel like they definitely want me. I want to go somewhere that fits my style of play and has a good major for me. I fI could see myself playing there, too. Getting a lot of playing time isn't the biggest deal to me. My education will be most important for me."
