DT Plans Return Trip to Death Valley

Torell Johnson, one of the top defensive tackles in Georgia, has already visited Death Valley once this year and now he is planning a return visit. CUTigers.com has the details in this recruiting update.

6-1, 315 pound defensive tackle prospect Torell Johnson had another strong performance for Salem High this past weekend. "Our game went pretty well. We won 28-24. We are 6-2 on the year. We will be the region champs if we can win the next two games. I had eight tackles and one sack. I have six sacks on the year," Johnson told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.

The Tigers have not offered Johnson yet, but they are continuing to show strong interest. "Yeah, Clemson has not offered yet, but I know they are interested. I think they are waiting on me to take my SAT one more time," Johnson said.

When asked who his current favorites are, Johnson responded, "I like Clemson, Auburn, Georgia, Florida and Michigan State. They are all similar to Clemson in that none of them have offered but they all seem close to offering."

Clemson assistant Ron West is recruiting Johnson for the Tigers. "I talked to Coach West last night. He asked me what game I was coming to come up for. I told him I would come up for the Florida State game. Coach West calls me a lot. We talk about every week," Johnson said.

The talented defender caught some of the Tigers victory over North Carolina State last Thursday. "I got to watch first half. It was pretty cool. They were up 14-0 real quick. I really like Clemson alot right now," he said.

And what about other potential visits? "I may go to an Auburn game this week or over the next few. I need to talk with Coach Knox about the visit," Johnson said.

And what about official visits?

"Right now I don't have a clue. I am trying to get my grades in order so I won't be doing all of this for nothing. I want to get my grades situated so I will be all set," Johnson added.
