Georgia DT Enjoys Clemson Visit

Torell Johnson, one of the top defensive tackles in Georgia this year, was back in Death Valley last Saturday to watch the Tigers rout FSU, 35-14. has the latest on the star defender in this recruiting update.

The 6-2, 315 pound prospect returned to Death Valley on Saturday to watch the Tigers dominate the Noles. "It was pretty fun. I wasn't really surprised. It all happened so fast. Clemson came out with a lot of intensity," Johnson told in a recent interview.

"It was a nice crowd. It seemed like after Stuckey and Davis scored it wasn't as loud. It got loud again in the second half. It wasn't as loud as the Texas A&M game, but that is probably because that game came down to the end."

The Georgia standout spoke with Clemson assistant coach Ron West during the visit. "Yeah I sat down and talked with Coach West. We talked about how I had played the week before. We didn't really talk much about an offer. I think they are close to offering," he said.

The talented defender has been named to the Georgia North/South All-star team. "I finished the season with eight sacks and around 30 tackles. We are done for the year. We lost in the second round of the playoffs. Now I am getting ready for the Georgia North/South All-star game," Johnson said.

The Salem High standout has not scheduled any of his official visits. "Right now I haven't planned any official visits yet. Hopefully I can take one to Clemson. Right now I have offers from the same schools: Maryland, Ole Miss and Ball State."
