JeMarcus Johnson out of Lago Vista High School made his commitment to the Baylor Bears and Head Coach Art Briles today. The commitment came on the heels of a recent campus visit.
"I visited the campus yesterday, and I really liked what I saw," said Johnson. "I talked with a lot of people, and I like the way they set up their academics."
Sporting offers from Vanderbilt, Air Force, and UTEP, Johnson decided the Baylor defensive secondary was the place he wanted to be. "I want to help Baylor win as many games as possible. I want to be the best cornerback to ever play at Baylor."
Lofty goals for a kid that is not afraid of challenges. Johnson has played all over the field for Lago Vista, including running back, wide receiver, safety, cornerback, and has handled kick and punt returning duties. Johnson, who also participates in track and field, is a unique athlete and football player, and admitted "a lot of coaches tell me I'm a smart player and a physical player."
How firm is his commitment? "I'm ending my recruitment, I'm going to Baylor," Johnson told BearsIllustrated.com.
