He might have de-committed from the Wolfpack on May 8th, but 4-Star 2020 Cornerback Joseph Johnson (6’3″/180) will be back in Raleigh this weekend on an Official Visit.

Before Johnson was an NC State Verbal Commit, he was verbally committed to Tennessee.

Johnson is planning on making his FINAL decision on July 5th at 5pm. He took an Official Visit to Texas A&M last weekend, and left with an offer. His 3rd scheduled Official Visit is next weekend (June 21st) at Penn State.
