Talented QB Prospect Favors Auburn, Florida

A 2007 football prospect comments on recruiting.

Waynesboro, Miss.--Wayne County High School has one of the most potent offenses in the state. The young man who leads the high octane offense is quarterback Drexler Johnson. Johnson is said by many to be the top playmaker in South Mississippi if not the entire State.

"The schools that are sending me the most letters are Auburn, USM (Southern Miss), Alabama and Florida," he says. "I don't have any offers yet, but I would say Auburn and Florida are my top schools."

Why Auburn and Florida for the 6-1, 185 quaterback with 4.6 speed?

"I have relatives that live in Florida that would be able to come see me play and they are a great team," he says. "As far as Auburn goes, I love those uniforms. We wear the same ones in high school. Plus, I have two teammates at Auburn already, Steve Gandy and Mike McLaughlin."

Drexler attended the University of Southern Mississippi's Black and Gold game on April 1st and came away pleased. "I had a nice time there. I may camp there. I am going to go to all the camps and clinics I can get to."

With so much potential and so many accomplishments already in high school you could understand if Drexler was a bit on the confident side, but nothing could farther from the truth.

"I feel that I am a good leader and that I make my teammates better, but they make me better, too," he says. "Football is not a one man game. Everyone has to go out there and do their job or the whole team loses."

Drexler threw for 2,483 yards as a junior at Wayne County and accounted for 44 touchdowns through the air and on the ground. His name will be one you may want to remember. Stay with Scout.com for the most up-to-date information on Drexler's college decision.
