Chamberlain senior running back Xavier Johnson verbally committed to South Alabama chiefs coach D.J. Mayo announced Saturday evening.

Johnson, a All-Hillsborough County first team selection by the Tampa Tribune, was the Chiefs offensive go-to player for 2-8 Chamberlain in 2011, rushing for 1,736 yards and 16 touchdowns on 231 carries. His yardage total was third among running backs in the county.

Johnson, a 5-foot-10, 185-pound elusive back, also had offers from Florida A&M, Toledo, UMass, Middle Tennessee and Ohio.
