Johnson Sports Three Offers

Most teams have a man for every position. Most players feel blessed to be able to play that position. However, some guys are gifted enough to play two positions making life easier for the coaching staff.

Ricky Johnson (6-0, 185, 4.38) is a blessing in disguise because he fills the role of three positions from time to time.

The Carencro High School product earned All-District and All-State Honorable Mention honors last year while playing running back, quarterback and wide receiver for his team.

He racked up 900 yards on the ground, 150 yards through the air and another 300 yards via receptions while hitting pay dirt nearly 20 times.

The stud student-athlete informed TigerRag.com on his recent trip to Death Valley for Junior Day and it appears the experience blew him away.

"My trip to LSU's Junior Day was a lot of fun," Johnson stated. "I met some recruits, toured the campus, saw a few of the LSU players and I also spoke with coach [Les] Miles.

"He told me I was a great athlete," Johnson continued. He said he watched my highlight film and was impressed at how I performed at all of my positions. He asked me what position I wanted to play in college and I told him wide receiver. He said he wants to watch me play at the receiver position at LSU's summer camp before he offers me a scholarship."

The versatile receiver recently added two offers to his lone Mississippi State offer while hoping to add another two to his list sometime soon.

"Mississippi State offered me as a wide receiver, Tulane offered me as a running back and Georgia Tech offered me as a quarterback," Johnson stated. "I am hoping to get offers from Alabama and Florida as well."

Johnson admitted to being open to any school that is somewhat close to home, but he is hoping to receive a written contract from one school in particular.

"If LSU would have offered me on Saturday, I would have committed then," Johnson informed. "You can't pass up on LSU because they have it all. LSU just won a national title, always have winning seasons and is located in Louisiana. I also like how LSU provides a lot of academic support to its athletes by providing a bunch of tutors."

Note: Johnson says he maintains a 3.3 G.P.A and scored a 16 on his ACT. He will retake the ACT in April. He maxed out in bench at 260 lbs. and in squat at 390 lbs.
