Wesley Johnson, a 6-5 1/2, 248-pound rising senior from Montgomery Bell Academy, showed quick feet, physical and mental toughness and good all-around athletic ability and hustle at the camp that drew close to 300 football prospects and suspects on the AU campus.
"The camp went well," Johnson says. "The best part was the one on ones, being able to get out there and compete."

Johnson says he believes he got the attention of offensive line coach Hugh Nall. "He talked to me pretty seriously," says the lineman, who hopes his performance at the camp will lead to a scholarship offer to go along with ones he has from Vanderbilt, Kentucky, Middle Tennessee, Miami of Ohio and others.
A second team All-State selection on a team that finished the 2007 season 13-0, Johnson is a returning starter at tackle. After his visit to Auburn, he says that he is seriously interested in the Tigers.
"Auburn is an awesome school," he says. "Coach Nall is a great a guy, the type of guy I would like to be coached by."
The offensive lineman participates in a footwork "mirror drill."
Johnson is scheduled to camp at Louisville on Sunday and then he will hit another one close to home at Vandy.
