"Ready to Play Football"

CUTigers.com recently caught up with Clemson signee Kendrick Johnson to get the latest on his spring and summertime plans as he prepares for his freshman year.

6-1, 175 pound wide receiver prospect Kendrick Johnson graduated from high school in December and hoped to enroll at Clemson in January, but paperwork delays caused him to postpone his enrollment.

"I am actually still in school," Johnson said in a recent interview with CUTigers.com. "I am just taking like two classes a day. I am taking weight training and a computer class. I'm just taking some classes that will help me once I get to Clemson.

"It is slow. I don't have much to do right now. I'm ready to get up the road."

Clemson coach David Blackwell is keeping Kendrick up to speed on how things are going at Clemson. "I talked with Coach Blackwell last week actually. He is just keeping me updated on what the team is doing during spring practice and everything," he said.

So what will Kendrick be doing between now and the start of his freshman year next fall? "I am going to come up with my mom and some friends for the spring game," he said. "I am going to enroll (at Clemson) in July. I should be up there for the second summer session."

Johnson said he is also doing everything he can to be in the best shape possible when he reports this summer. "I am running and practicing on my 40 time, things like that," he said.

What is the Florida standout looking forward to the most about getting to Clemson? "I'm just ready to play some football," Johnson added.

As a senior at Dillard High School, Johnson recorded 30 catches for 450 yards and seven touchdowns in an offense that was built mostly around the running game.
