Kirk Johnson On Longhorns and More

RB Kirk Johnson

After being injured during his junior season, running back Kirk Johnson is determined to have a big senior year. The 5-foot-11,190-pound back checks in from San Jose (CA) Valley Christian School.

Kirk Johnson talks about the recruiting process and his feelings on the coaching staff at Texas.

"I would say the recruiting proses for me has been a little slow compared to some of the other top recruits in the country," Kirk Johnson said. "Being injured during the season effected not only how I played but I believe recruiting as well. However, it has picked up a lot since the start of February and after my performance at the Army combine."

While Johnson has no favorites keep an eye on schools such as California and Texas, both of which are showing him a lot of attention at this time.

"Over the last two years I have only visited a few schools," Johnson said. "I have been to California twice, Washington once and Texas two times. As to what teams are showing me the most love I would say there isn't one that stands out more than others but the top ones would be Texas and California."

Johnson will be a busy man over the next several weeks as he plans to visit multiple schools.

"The up coming trips I plan on taking are UCLA, USC, Arizona, Arizona State, California and Texas," Johnson said. "Those are the planned ones but I am still trying to find time to visit Washington, Wisconsin, Utah, and the school I (possibly) will visit is Missouri. My mind is still open so I want to see what all is out there for me."

Where do the Longhorns stand for Johnson?

"My interest in Texas is up there but I am still open," Johnson said. "I want to see what all the other schools have to offer then I will make a final decision once I have seen most of the schools that are interested in me. The staff at Texas is great. I really believe they are one of the best in all of college football. Texas is blessed to have a staff like it has now." Recommended Stories
