Iowa State WR commit taking only one official visit

Arkansas wide receiver Josh Johnson is one of the top commits in Iowa State’s class, which made it no surprise when rumors swirled that he could be taking official visits to multiple schools.

On Wednesday, he took to Twitter to squash those rumors for good.

Johnson will visit Iowa State on Sept. 3 for the season opener against Northern Iowa. The 5-foot-11-inch, 170-pound, pass catcher also holds offers from Notre Dame, Minnesota, Oklahoma State, Kansas, Kansas State, Vanderbilt and a host of others.

Johnson is rated as a three-star prospect by 247.
