From his page:

Johnson will have three years to play two wherever he ends up and said he expects to be there for spring practices.

Our website:

I'd say no. He's not listed on the Spring roster. He was not mentioned on Jason Hatchell's Spring blog---and as a linebacker you would think he would mention another LB. Also, I did not see him at the spring game.
