Thought Georgia running back Storm Johnson was expected to give his commitment to LSU this weekend, that didn't happen. Johnson was publicly quoted as saying he would commit this weekend and since it didn't happen, many of those who frequent the LSU message boards are ready to jump off a bridge.
With all of Johnson's comments leading up to this weekend, I think one of two things happened here:
1) Johnson told Les Miles that he was ready to be a Tiger and Miles was pleased to hear it. However, he asked Johnson not to go "public" with the commitment because LSU still wants to pursue other running backs, and having a big-time RB committed would make that more difficult.
2) Johnson told Les Miles that he was ready to be a Tiger and Miles was pleased to hear it. However, Miles told Johnson that if he was going to be committed to LSU, then he didn't want him taking any other visits to other schools. Johnson, though he wants to be a Tiger, would like to take advantage of some free visits to some other schools. So they mutually decided to wait before making the commitment official.
When it's all said done, I think Storm Johnson will a part of this signing class for LSU.
