"My two newest offers are Florida and Miami. It's still open right now as far as favorites go though. I'm looking at a couple of schools like USC, Michigan, NC State, Duke and UNC. I'm still neutral really however. I want to have a top 5 by midway through the football season," Carl Johnson said.
Johnson has been making the rounds to junior days across the ACC.
"I went to a couple of junior days at North Carolina State, Virginia, Duke, North Carolina and Clemson. They were all pretty similar. I already know the coaches so I was just kind of re-introducing myself to them."
Does Johnson know where he'll camp this summer?
"I'm really not sure on any team camps right now. By the first week in May, I'll have that all sorted out. I am going to the Scout.com Combine at Duke in a couple of weeks."
The Southern High School standout is busy with track at the current time.
"I throw the discuss and the shot put. We've only had 2 meets and I won the shot put at both of those. I qualified for state last year and I want to win the state championship."
What are his goals for his senior football season?
"In football this year I just want to bring the players together and get that same will and desire to win championships. I want to do more than just 8-4. Just because our coach left, doesn't mean it's the end of Southern football. This season should be like a statement for us. Our new coach is excited and he's just bringing more excitement to the team."
