Speedy Will Feels At Home At Georgia Tech

Corner back Will Johnson from Chattahoochee High School cornerback Will Johnson was one of the many high profile recruits that were at Georgia Tech this past weekend. The visit was the second to Tech for Johnson and this time he brought his mom and brother. All three came away with a great feeling about Georgia Tech.

"This was my second trip to Georgia Tech (Maryland game earlier in the season) and each time that I have been to Georgia Tech they have treated me very well and showed me the upmost respect and made me feel very at home."

Will Johnson was able to accomplish a lot on his second visit. "I was able to show my mom and brother all the good things I like about Georgia Tech." Will talked with the secondary coach Charles Kelly and his recruiting coach, Lamar Owens. "They talked to me about coming in for an official visit and they said the whole staff feels I would be an asset to the team." Johnson expects to take that official visit in early January."

A written offer has not been extended to Johnson but he feels good about the possibility of receiving one. Where would an offer put Tech on Johnson's list? "It would put them right up there at the top; very high in my eyes."

Will is taking an official visit to Tennessee-Chattanooga on the weekend of December 3rd and will be receiving a visit from their coaches November 29th. He has not decided what other schools will receive official visits other than Georgia Tech. "I will take the five official visits in December and January and then make my decision right after that."

Most of the schools recruiting Johnson are looking at him as a cornerback but some are giving him the option to play wide receiver. "All the schools said they would look at me on special teams as a kick returner and punt returner because of my 4.36 speed in the forty."

Will knows what he's looking for in making his decision. "I have to look at education first. It is important to me." Johnson will also be looking at how he feels on campus, the relationships he has with the coaches and players already there or coming in with him, and going to school close to home would be a big consideration.
