Johnson Set to Sign
Jocquell Johnson profile "Honestly, I am probably going to get up, sign my papers, send them in and then go back home and go to sleep," said Johnson with a laugh on signing day eve. "It's a big deal to me, but I am not going to do anything big. "I am just going to sign and then get ready to go to school. "I am supposed to report to Mississippi State on January 12th." Johnson and Hinds Community College standout Norman Price are both set to sign with the Bulldogs on the opening of the signing period Wednesday. While the JuCo sled pushing tandem has been linked throughout the process due to their classification and long time commitments, Johnson and Price are not very familiar with each other. That will change in relatively short order if things go as planned. "I think me and Norman and going to room together," said Johnson. "I don't really know him that well. "We talked some when we took our visit, but he is sort of like me about talking. "I don't really talk a whole lot and I am not really out there as a people person. "I get the feeling Norman is like that too and that's fine with me." While the anticipation of joining an SEC roster brings a smile to the Jackson, Mississippi native's face, he admits leaving Co-Lin was a little bitter sweet. "I had a good experience at Co-Lin," said Johnson. "I am glad to get away from there and get to the next level, but I am going to miss Coach (Glenn) Davis and all of the other coaches and all of the guys at Co-Lin. "I am happy about moving on, but I am going to miss being around those guys everyday. "I am ready to go to Mississippi State now and take the next step."
