Profile - Jordan Johnson
One of those schools that has offered is Georgia Tech. Johnson has noticed the players from the Jacksonville area that dot the Tech roster. Jordan was scheduled to visit Tech last month but was unable to make the visit due to transportation issues. "I was disappointed in not making the trip. I wanted to see the school and campus first hand and get to talk to the coaches in person."
Jordan hopes to reschedule the visit. “I know I will be visiting because I have a lot of family in Atlanta.” Tech Coach Lamar Owens recruits the Jacksonville area and he and Jordan have kept in touch. “He’s a real cool guy and I like him a lot.” Jordan knows that if he were to choose Tech, he would already know some players on the team.
In spite of not having visited, Tech is a school that will remain in the picture with Johnson. "I like the academics there and the fact that they run the ball a lot is a good thing.” Jordan feels that run blocking and his footwork are two of his strengths.
Johnson plays tackle for Ed White but could see himself moving inside once he gets to college. “Right now I am 6'3"-270 and I feel any of the interior spots would be good for me.”
With double-digit offers, Jordan is happy with the way his recruitment is proceeding. "My recruitment has been much better than I anticipated and I’m enjoying it a lot."
Rutgers and South Carolina are two of the schools that stand out to Jordan. Rutgers stands out because his brother plays there and South Carolina because of Coach Steve Spurrier. Jordan plans to visit South Carolina the weekend of April 11th for their spring game.
