Johnson sets up USC official visit

Carson (Calif.) offensive lineman Bobby Johnson is beginning to set up his visits and recently locked one in with local favorite, USC.

Bobby Johnson had a very good senior year and his tape has drawn the attention of a lot of schools from all over the west. He measured out at 6-4, 280 pounds at the NIKE Camp last May but looks even longer on tape.

He has long arms, very good feet, and is one of the more athletic tackles in the state. He's a strong run blocker who will routinely drive his man 10 yards down the field and does a nice job finishing the play.

When you look at his frame, athleticism and toughness, Johnson is a player with a very nice upside and his best days are definitely ahead of him. He'll continue to get stronger and fill out more in his upper body. As he develops more as a player and refines his technique, he could be a major steal for someone.

On the recruiting front, Johnson had a visit scheduled with USC for (Jan. 17) but that will now take place later in the month.

"I just talked to Tee Martin on Thursday and we decided to move the visit back to (Jan. 31)," Johnson said. "He said with the new OL coach still coaching the 49ers, it would just be easier and give him more time to get to know me.

"I'm going to try and schedule San Diego State or Fresno State for that 17th weekend now. Those are the other two schools I'm hearing a lot from that I want to visit and they have all offered except for USC. Hopefully USC offers, that would be huge. I've been talking with Tee and Coach Nansen and they said they're very interested and something could happen so I'm just going to play it out and hope for the best."
