It's still LSU

Every recruit wants to make an immediate impact at the collegiate level. The depth chart can change a prospect's decision from one school to another. Loganville (Ga.) Buford running back Storm Johnson sees LSU's lack of signing many recent running backs as a motivating factor in his decision.

“The depth chart plays a big role,” Storm Johnson said. “It’s one of the biggest factors [with LSU]. If I work hard I may get a chance to start or get some playing time. I’m a big back; I would probably be the biggest one coming in.”

Johnson aims to graduate early – December – from high school and participate in spring practices to get a leg up on the competition wherever he ends up at. With offers from Tennessee, Auburn, Oklahoma, Florida State, Florida, Stanford, and several others, he certainly doesn’t suffer from a lack of options.

 

The 6-foot-1, 205-pound prospect used his power and size to lead Buford to the Class 2A State Championship, pounding the rock for 1,300 yards and 21 touchdowns during his junior campaign.

 

That showing opened up the eyes of coaches from all over the country, and after months of evaluating his suitors he has a handful that he has zeroed in on.

 

“The main schools are Florida, LSU, Tennessee, Auburn, Michigan State and Penn State,” Johnson said. “It’s a long process and a lot of hard work. I have to put in time after hours and talk to a lot of people, but I’ve learned to manage it.”

 

The three-star prospect and nation’s No. 29-ranked running back visited LSU a few months ago and was impressed by what the Tigers had to offer.

 

“I liked LSU a lot,” he added. “I like the coaching staff and I like the campus. The academics were nice. I went to a practice, and it was a great experience. Everything was very good.”

 

Johnson also visited Florida during the spring, where he took in the sights and sounds of Gainesville.

 

“It was good. A lot of people are going to Florida. It’s a beautiful campus, a beautiful state.”

 

According to Johnson, LSU is still in the same place that it has been since his visit in March, while Florida is not far off with Tennessee, Penn State and Ohio State close behind. He says he is still researching all of the schools that are recruiting him, and no matter where he goes, the college needs a stamp of approval from his family.

 

“It’s still LSU at the top,” Johnson said.

 

“My family plays a big role in my decision,” he added. “They want me to know everything about the school. It’s 85 percent my decision and 15 percent their decision.”

 

As for his parents’ view on the Bayou Bengals….

 

“They love LSU. They love the coaching staff. Les Miles talked to them for about an hour. They like the atmosphere, the campus and how it’s structured.”

 

Johnson has his own relationship with the Tigers’ coaches. He said he maintains contact with Miles and running backs coach Larry Porter.


Storm Johnson shakes a would-be tackler

With many prospects are getting out on the road and traveling for camps, Johnson plans to put some highway miles on his dad’s truck with a trip to Baton Rouge on his agenda.

 

“I’m going to go this summer, but this trip will be more fun than business,” he said. “I’m going to hang out with the players and coaches, and make this like a vacation. I know the business side of LSU already so this will be more for pleasure.”
