Johnson Getting More Looks

Patterson High QB/Ath Terrance Johnson has drawn attention from college recruiters, but it may be at another position.

At 6-3,185-pounds, Terrance Johnson turned a few heads this summer at football camps. Johnson has a strong arm, but it's his 4.5 speed in the forty that has some coaching staffs interested in his service. The Cajuns are one of those programs that have an interest in the Patterson High athlete's speed and agility.

"I attended camps at LSU, ULM and the Manning Passing camp this summer, Johnson said." "We also participated in the Cajun 7-on-7 passing camp and I had the opportunity to speak to the coaches and look the facilities. They are looking at me more of an athlete, then at quarterback. I wouldn't have a problem play out at the wide receiver position and several other schools have told me I have a chance at another position."

Johnson is already holding one offer from ULM, but several other schools have contacted him over the past few months.

"South Alabama and Ole Miss have contacted me recently. Mississippi State left word with coach that they are interested, but with the recent hurricane I haven't been able to speak with anyone."

With all the turmoil from Hurricane Gustav, Johnson hasn't had much time to think about college football. In fact, Monday was Patterson Highs first day of practice since the storm.

"It's been a little crazy with the power outages and trees down in the area, Johnson stated." "Today was our first practice since the hurricane and will have one more practice tomorrow for our game against Cecilia High Wednesday night."

Terrance has been taking a pre-ACT class in preparation of the test in October. He has a 2.8 GPA and is interested in Physical Education as a major.

"I would really like to teach and coach, major in Physical Education. That is my focus for the future and my dream."
