Before ending his fourth summer visit to the school, Roscoe Johnson was offered by North Carolina. As he predicted, the Union County (S.C.) wide receiver accepted on the spot.
Johnson, a 6-foot-1, 175-pounder, snatched the UNC staff’s attention – specifically primary recruiter and wide receivers coach Gunter Brewer – when he commenced the Tar Heels’ second one-day camp of 2015 with a 4.4-second 40-yard dash on the slow surface of Navy Practice Field.
In addition to impressing during the remainder of the aforementioned camp, Johnson helped Union County reach the finals of the “Beast of the Hill” 7-on-7 Team Camp.
Johnson returned to UNC a third time for Fedora’s Freak Show. There, he proved capable of performing against elite competition.
Besides not having to work out, this week’s overnight stay marked Johnson’s mother’s inaugural visit.
Throughout the summer, Johnson maintained communication with Brewer. Some weeks the two spoke on a daily basis.
Although he caught 50 passes for 800 yards and eight touchdowns last season, Johnson’s recruitment didn’t begin collecting steam until June. He was offered by the only other school that he camped at (Appalachian State) and also picked up a Middle Tennessee offer.
