The skinny: Johnson probably provided UT’s coaches with a big sense of relief when his fax rolled through the machine today. Though he’s been committed for months, Johnson was very open with his recruitment and kept in constant contact with Florida. He had a stand-out performance at last month’s Under Armour All-America game and already looks the part of a college linebacker.
