The offer list is growing quickly for the 6-6, 335 pound prospect. "My offer list looks pretty good. The newest offers are from Miami, Florida and Clemson. They offered a few weeks ago," Johnson told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.

The blue-chip prospect has traveled around the southeast over the past few weeks to visit several ACC schools. "Yeah, I have visited North Carolina State, Duke, North Carolina, Virginia and Clemson," said Johnson.

The monster lineman visited Clemson, with his father, for Junior Day. "It was a good visit. My dad played there so I already knew a lot about Clemson. I've seen the facilities numerous times. My dad hadn't been there in about a year. The last time I was there my dad was on his honeymoon so he didn't get to come. My dad had not seen the new turf practice field. It was really nice."

The WestZone video was impressive to the North Carolina standout. "It looks cool on the video. When it gets finished Clemson will once again have one of the top facilities in the country," added Johnson.

Johnson was also impressed with one of the newest coaching additions to Tiger Town. "I got to meet with Coach Hobby. He was a cool guy. He talked about what his background and what he brings to the table," said the North Carolina stand out.

When asked if he has any favorites at this time, Johnson responded, "I don't have any right now. I hope by the time the season starts I will narrow it down to my top five."

What will Johnson consider when selecting his top five this summer?

"I will look at the graduation rate. Do they graduate over or under 50%? That will include all students, not just football. I want a place that makes me feel like I am home. They have got to have a winning tradition. I don't want to go where they accept losing. I hate to lose and I don't want to go where they accept it."

The talented lineman says he would like to major in Human Resources and Development.
