Just when Virginia and Miami fans thought they were the last two teams standing in the battle for Newport News (Va.) Heritage running back Mike Johnson, a third team is in the mix.
"I've been thinking about Michigan State a bit lately," said the 5-foot-10, 180-pound senior. "They have a team in place that could challenge for the Big 10 title, but they need a running back and say that I could step in."
Johnson visited MSU during his football season and has also been to Miami and Virginia. There is no leader according to the speedy back.
"I'm meeting with coaches and keeping an open mind," he said. "I'll probably decide sometime next week, but right now I'm only thinking about my track meet this weekend."
