Patrick Johnson picks LSU
SAN ANTONIO - The roller-coaster recruiting saga of five-star cornerback Patrick Johnson is over.
The Pompano Beach (Fla.) Ely product announced his choice from his three finalists of LSU, Florida and Florida State live during the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio on Saturday.
"My decision is that I want to spend my next couple years at LSU," Johnson said. "I feel comfortable with (LSU coach) Les Miles."
The former Miami commit made news earlier in the week when he announced that he had eliminated the Hurricanes from consideration.
Johnson won't have to wait long to start his college career since he is a mid-term graduate and plans to enroll at LSU on Monday, January 14.
Johnson is rated as the nation's No. 1 cornerback prospect and No. 3 overall by Rivals.com.
