Top Florida OL Prospect Looking at Clemson

Brian Johnson (6'5, 300) of Godby High School in Tallahassee, FL has already received close to 25 offers. With his size, strength, and 5.0 speed, all of the major college football powers in the south are beating down his door. Which way is he leaning to start the football season? We've got a report for you right here.

Johnson is currently ranked as the #8 offensive guard prospect in the country by recruiting expert Max Emfinger and his stock has been, and will continue to rise this fall.

Johnson figures to be either a tackle or guard at the Division 1-A level, but interestingly enough, his top choice, the Miami Hurricanes, have yet to offer, "I would say my number one is Miami," he said. "Clemson, LSU, Florida, Arkansas and North Carolina State are my top schools."

"Clemson, North Carolina State, Arkansas, and LSU have all offered at this point," he said. "I am still waiting on Miami and Florida."

Johnson is quick for his size and very strong. He benches close to 390 and squats an impressive 515 lbs. He is known as another one of those players that "blows people" consistently off the ball.

Coach Rick Stockstill has been the one recruiting Brian Johnson the hardest. It has also been reported that the Tigers are after two of his teammates, and this could play significantly into who and who doesn't become a Tiger.

Shelton Crews, coach at Godby High, has called Brian Johnson the best player to come out of his school in the seven years he's been there as head coach. It goes without saying that this kid has impressed a lot of people around the country.

With the Miami Hurricanes and Florida Gators entering the picture, it could be tough to get this stud out of the state of Florida. Johnson has indicated that he could make his decision by the middle of this high school football season, and that it could be sooner if the "right school" offers.

The Tigers are certainly not out of the question at this point, as we sure could use an offensive lineman with his size and quickness. We will monitor the progress of this impressive athlete for you throughout season.
