"Delaware offered me a full ride I want to say last month," he said. "East Carolina is looking at me, Virginia is a little interested along with William & Mary, Old Dominion and Virginia Tech a bit."

"I was pretty happy about it," he said. "I haven't visited the school, so I don't know that much about the campus, but I like it."
Another school may be getting closer to offering.
"East Carolina told me to come down at the end of this month for a junior day," he said. "I'm getting to know them more and they said they were very impressed with my film. They told me in the future I can count on them as an option."
Does Johnson like anyone?
"I like Virginia a lot," he said. "They have a good business program up there, they have one of the top business programs in the nation. I've been on a couple visits and Mike London is a pretty good guy. I've talked to him a few times."
Johnson played quarterback this season for Meadowbrook earning second team all-district and first team all-metro honors while throwing for 1,299-yards, 17 touchdowns and three interceptions along with 500-yards rushing and 10 touchdowns on the ground.
"I feel like I played pretty well," he said. "My speed improved a lot this year and I improved as a passer.
"I still want to get a lot faster and become more of a versatile player for next season."
