Johnson is the second 2021 prospect to commit to Virginia Tech, joining New Jersey safety Jalen Hoyle. He is expected to play the cornerback position for the Hokies.
Tech is the first offer for Johnson, though he’s already listed as a 3-star player and the No. 7 player in the state of South Carolina by 247Sports.
