I was very impressed and it was just all real nice. I was able to speak with all the coaches. Coach Sparky Woods is my recruiting coach. He is a really good coach," said Anthony Johnson.
Johnson is a member of the South
Hot 100, and he has plans to attend a few more college games.
"I am going to try and go to the Southern Miss
Homecoming game. Right now, I don't know where else
I am going to go. I am in the process of looking at a
few other games."
"I am probably going to set my (official) visits up after the
season. I know I am going to go to LSU, Auburn, and
Alabama. I don't know of the other two schools I will
visit yet," Johnson added.

Johnson recently learned of his official offer
from the Tide.
"Alabama has officially given me a scholarship. The
letter had been in my coach's office since September

Alabama, Southern Miss, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and Memphis," said Johnson.
Several coaches are staying in touch.
"I talk to Coach Hobby (Ole Miss), Coach Johnson
(Southern Miss), and Coach Woods (Alabama), every week.
Auburn calls me every now and then. Coach Croom
(Mississippi State) has also called me."
Provine High School is undefeated, but is not ranked.
"The season is going pretty good. We are 8-0. We are
not ranked yet. I don't really know why, but we are
just going to keep winning. We are hoping to have home
field advantage in th playoffs. I have scored 15
touchdowns and intercepted six passes this year. In
our game last week, I had a blocked punt for a
touchdown and an interception for a touchdown," said
This Friday, Provine will host Indianola Gentry.
