Dominick Johnson Names a Leader

When we last talked to Raleigh, North Carolina athlete Dominick Johnson back in early December, he listed Georgia Tech as one of his three early favorite programs, along with Clemson and Tennessee.

It is now two months later and it appears that Johnson's relationship with the Yellow Jackets has only strengthened.

Johnson was recently in Atlanta for Georgia Tech's Junior Day and he came away with the Yellow Jackets in firm position as his leader. "I really liked it," Johnson said of Tech's Junior Day. "I was with my parents and they were very impressed too. I'm very interested in Georgia Tech and they are definitely my top school right now."

Johnson has the potential to play multiple positions at the collegiate level, but the Yellow Jackets are recruiting him as a wide receiver. While Tech's spread option attack might scare off some receiver prospects, Johnson does not seem concerned about the Yellow Jacket's propensity for running the football.

"Their receiver coach was talking about with the way that they run their offense the receivers are often wide open. Regardless, I'm more of a team player. It would be nice to get the ball here and there, but as long as we are winning, I don't mind blocking. I just want to do what is best for the team."

Despite his interest in the program, Johnson has not yet picked up a scholarship offer from the Yellow Jackets. However, Johnson is hopeful that will change after he attends Georgia Tech's camp this summer.

Even if Johnson does eventually pick up his Georgia Tech offer, it does not sound like he is in a rush to make a commitment.

"I'll probably play the recruitment out, because maybe some other schools might want to get involved. I'll probably just wait until next Signing Day if new teams keep entering the picture. If nothing changes, I could commit sometime during my senior season." Top Stories
