Bademosi Nearing Decision

Johnson Bademosi has been extremely busy lately. The Washington, D.C., native has visited Harvard, Stanford and Penn over the past week and just picked up his fourth scholarship offer from the Maryland Terrapins on Sunday evening. We caught up with the talented defensive back recently to find out what he thinks of all this recent activity in his recruiting.

Johnson Bademosi, a 6-foot, 190-pound safety from Gonzaga College High School now holds offers from Stanford, Maryland, Syracuse and Army and is also looking into Ivy League programs like Harvard and Pennsylvania, both of which he recently visited and received offers from. Brown and Princeton have also offered.

"I actually just picked up an offer from the Maryland coaching staff about 10 minutes ago," Bademosi exclaimed. "I'm really excited about it because when you grow up in Maryland you watch them your whole life, seeing yourself playing for the Terps. I am very comfortable with the coaching staff and know a lot of players on the team. One thing Maryland offers that some of these other programs don't is that it's so close to home that my family could come see me play and be a part of my college experience which is important to me."

Bademosi visited Stanford on Friday and Saturday and is at Penn on Sunday. He talked about both programs.

"My visit to Stanford was great, I loved it," Bademosi stated. "The school is absolutely phenomenal and the visit really blew my mind. The weather was beautiful, I feel like I met every single player on the team and I really like that they have such a diverse group of people that go there. The coaching staff is all great and I see them as a program that is on the rise, and fast. My mother and I really like the academic side of things at Stanford as well obviously."

"Harvard and Penn are the two schools I'm considering the most in the Ivy League," Bademosi said. "I think they are both great programs and great schools as well."

Bademosi says the schools that are very high on his list in no particular order are Maryland, Stanford, Penn and Harvard. He is planning on making his decision very soon, perhaps in the next week.
