Alabama TE Has 1st Two Offers... For Hoops

<b> Michael Johnson </b> is an extremely gifted athlete from Dallas County High School in Plantersville, Alabama.&nbsp; Johnson is a&nbsp;great tight end prospect&nbsp;and&nbsp;a great&nbsp;basketball prospect. He has received two offers for one sport.&nbsp; Johnson is now&nbsp;&nbsp;looking to get his first from the other.

"I have not received any football scholarships yet. I have received two basketball scholarships. Troy State and Bowling Green have offered me," said Michael Johnson.
 
Right now, Johnson is torn between his love for both sports.

"I don't know which sport I will play in college. I might play both. I have not talked to the Alabama coaches about whether or not they would allow me to play both. The Georgia Tech coaches have told me they would not mind.  I'm  going to several football and basketball camps  to see how things go."

Johnson has kept a full calendar for the summer..

"I have been to Alabama's football camp and Indiana's basketball camp.  I have been playing in AAU tournaments for the Alabama Lazers.  I am going to Georgia Tech for their football camp this weekend. I will go to Clemson, UAB, and Memphis," Johnson said

Alabama made a strong impression on Johnson. 

 "I really liked it.  It was very interesting and very competitive. I liked how they treated me. I spoke with Coach Sparky Woods and the tight ends coach. The tight ends coach told me he was very impressed. He said I was moving up on their list.  I really liked all the coaches. They were just awesome. I am really going to be looking at Alabama," said Johnson.

Johnson will have a lot to think about when he makes his decision on whether to play football, basketball, or both. 

"For football, Alabama is my favorite. I really like their basketball program as well.  I would have to put Auburn above Alabama in basketball. The only reason, I was able to go and talk with some of Auburn's coaches. I am also considering Georgia Tech, Southern Miss, and Clemson."

Johnson will know where he is destined to play before his senior football season begins.

"I want to know where I want to go  before my season begins. I probably will wait until November before I make my commitment," Johnson said.
