Johnson Impressive at Auburn Prospect Camp

This prospect from Nashville talks about his football camp experience at Auburn.

Nashville, Tenn.--Auburn has two spots left for offensive line signees in the 2009 recruiting class and a player who is making a bid to get an offer to be one of those players was a standout at Auburn's one-day Senior Camp on Saturday.

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.
