It is now official:
Jake & his older brother Max Johnson have both transferred from LSU, staying within the same division and heading to ultimate rivals Texas A&M.....the last team Max Johnson played against, hilariously enough.
While this move has already ruffled a ton of feathers amongst the LSU Tigers fanbase, LSUODYSSEY.COM had to know what went behind the move, so we talked to both Jake & Brad, with a few comments from Max we'll keep off the record:
Despite the entire college football world barraging them with demands to reveal their next destination, Jake, Max & their parents Brad and Nikki were the only four to know the future move.
LONN: So they were all saying Max to South Carolina on Geaux 247, that didn't turn out right?
JAKE: We told South Carolina no, then they went to go get Spencer (Rattler).
LONN: Wow! All the reports were "Max & Jake to South Carolina" but your father told me "don't buy any of it".....he was right.
JAKE: Max wanted to go to Notre Dame as a joke (laughs). We are both happy & both excited
LONN: Who all came knocking?
JAKE: Had a lot of schools reach out, USC came calling......Texas A&M was the only one that either one of us wanted. Separately we said "we want this school". Worked out for both.
LONN: How you feeling now after this re-commitment?
JAKE: Doing good, glad all of it is over and now just get ready for it all.
LONN: Did you see this happening even a month ago?
JAKE: No. But when it went down with Max I was all in. I’m really happy the way it ended up.
LONN: LSU's last head coach disrespected Max throughout the season....it sucks you guys left, but I understand why and I think the fan base should understand why, as well.
JAKE: I also am very thankful for the coaches at LSU that recruited me. I think that should be said and with whole new beginning and no staff in place, I felt it was in my best interest (to transfer from LSU). I’m now with coaches that I have known for four years at Texas A&M through the recruiting process.
LONN: What was it like talking with Jimbo?
JAKE: All ball. He’s watched all my film and talked about how I fit into the system.
LONN: What was the one thing that made you feel THIS is the place?
JAKE: I know a lot of the coaches there plus they have plays and actually throw to the TE. I have friends that go to school there, too.
