DE Tyreek Johnson of Lakewood, who has been on commitment watch for USC for several weeks, plans to make two trips to Columbia this week. He’s coming in Thursday without his parents to watch practice so he doesn’t plan to commit then. But he’s returning for Saturday’s practice with his parents and it’s then he’s planning to make his pledge to Will Muschamp. Johnson has always maintained it is important to him to have his parents with him when he commits.
