Johnson Impressed By Loeffler's Offense

Jeremy Johnson discusses his Auburn A-Day experience and what he saw from the Tigers on offense.

Montgomery, Ala.—A four-star prospect on the football field as a quarterback and also one of the top basketball players in Alabama, Jeremy Johnson had a busy weekend as he took the ACT and also took in Auburn's A-Day game on Saturday.

Having the opportunity to watch new offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler's offense in person for the first time and see what it was all about, Johnson said he enjoyed the experience tremendously.

"The spring game was great," Johnson said. "I like how Coach Loeffler has the offense going right now. The only thing different was that they were in the huddle more. There were some different formations and they were under center more than the last couple of years.

"They had a lot of movement and shifting," he said. "There was great timing and accuracy from the quarterbacks. I have seen a lot of changes in all of the quarterbacks since he's been there."

Seeing the progress in Auburn's quarterbacks is something that Johnson said he expected after he did his homework on the new coach since he arrived from Temple.

"Yes sir, because in the research I have been doing he has gotten it done," Johnson said. "I saw that he got it done with Kiehl and Zeke. It excited me a lot. Coach Loeffler is a great quarterback coach."

While he was anxious to see Loeffler's offense on the field, Johnson said it was also important for him to continue to get to know the young offensive coach. That was something that happened over the weekend as Johnson spent time with him and his family.

"We talked for a little bit after the game," Johnson said. "He was telling me that he's going to be down a week from Friday to watch me practice this spring. That was about it.

"I'm getting closer to him every day," he added. "I met his dad and his wife. We're getting there."

Closing in on double-digit offers and with the likelihood to add even more after the spring evaluation period, Johnson said at the moment he's focused on three schools with other's still trying to get into the mix.

"One day at practice I found out I had eight offers total that I never know of," Johnson said. "Right now it's Auburn, LSU, Ole Miss, Southern Miss, Arkansas State, Purdue, Houston, and Alabama State. Auburn and LSU are my top two and then Ole Miss."

With spring football around the corner and summer basketball also on his schedule, Johnson will be a busy guy leading up to his senior season for the Carver Wolverines. Because of that he said his recruiting will likely last until deep into the fall so he can make the right decision.

"I have taken my visits and spent a whole day with each school (his favorites)," Johnson said. "I'm just going to take my time. I'm going to watch some games this fall and spend more time with the coaches. It's probably going to be at the end of the football season."
