Recruiting: Beau Johnson Makes It Official
Johnson said he chose Oklahoma State over Kansas and Mississippi. "There really wasn't much difference between Oklahoma State and Kansas. Both were really in the same situation with their (starting) running backs leaving. I just liked Oklahoma State better."
Johnson said he will be in Stillwater on Jan. 5 to enroll for the spring semester, and is looking forward to getting on the field for spring practice. He will be competing with sophomore-to-be Kendall Hunter for the starting position with junior-to-be Keith Toston sidelined with a knee injury.
"The coaches told me they were bringing me in and expecting me to play against Washington State," Johnson said of OSU's season opener Aug. 30. "I feel like I'm going to be ready. I think spring practice will give me an advantage of learning the system, instead of coming in in July like the other players."
Johnson, who rushed for 1,756 yards and 19 touchdowns as a sophomore this past season, is one of six junior college players expected to sign with Oklahoma State on Wednesday, including cornerback Maurice Gray and defensive tackle Swanson Miller, teammates of Johnson's at Butler County this past season.
In addition, OSU is expected to receive letters of intent from safety Luciene Antoine of Fort Scott (Kans.) C.C., defensive tackle Chris Donaldson of Coffeyville (Kans.) C.C., and defensive end Jeremiah Price of Jones County (Miss.) C.C.
