Bulls Offer Massive Defensive Tackle

Late Saturday evening, 2015 Ellenwood (Ga.) Cedar Grove defensive tackle, Quentez Johnson, received an offer from a school out of the American Athletic Conference.

With the ability to plug up the interior of the defensive line at 6-foot-4, 310-pounds, Ellenwood (Ga.) Cedar Grove defensive tackle, Quentez Johnson, is a name that's starting to surface on several team's radar from all throughout the country.

The massive Peach State product was awarded with his first two scholarship offers last week from Michigan State and Mississippi State. While it might of caught Johnson by surprise, the defensive lineman received another scholarship late Saturday night.

This time, it was Willie Taggart and the South Florida Bulls who dipped into Georgia with a scholarship offer for the highly skilled defensive lineman.

"Coach (Eric) Mathies (defensive line) just said that he wants me to visit," Johnson said. "He then said that he wants me to play for him and said that I have an offer now. It was very abrupt."

Johnson admits that he's unfamiliar with Taggart and the Bulls.

"No, sir, I don't, but now I will look into the program."

After a strong junior campaign, in which he amassed 65 tackles, 12 tackles for loss and three sacks, the Cedar Grove standout is also receiving interest from Alabama, Wisconsin, North Carolina State and Arkansas.

"I have fast hands and my motor is amazing," Johnson said. "I can read an offense easily as well."

Along with a great education, the chance to play early will be very important for Johnson when he selects his future school.

"I like schools with great education and a chance to play early."
