2008 New Mexico Lobos Season, Game Recaps, Scores and Reviews
NMMI's Johnson hopes for good news soon
New Mexico picked up the phone and called Johnson who promptly sent them his highlight tape and he's hoping some good news will come down this week.
"I'm supposed to talk to them this week," Johnson said. "They said they were interested in me and they needed DBs badly, so I think I have a good shot at getting one, but right now I have to be patient and wait and see what they have to say."
As a sophomore in 2008, Johnson was tasked with locking down the opponents' top receiver and he did that well, notching over 40 tackles while also throwing in three interceptions and over 10 passes defensed.
"I can play either man-to-man or zone," Johnson said. "We didn't play a lot of zone here at NMMI, but I did that a lot in high school so I feel comfortable doing both."
Johnson will finish his AA degree in May and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
