Talks about Ole Miss visit
The following information was revealed during our interview with Anthony Johnson:
Did you make it in for your official visit to Ole Miss? "Yes sir."
Did anyone come with you? "My dad did."
How did he like it? "He liked it alright. He liked it pretty good."
Who was your host? "Charles Clark. He was a pretty good guy. He told me what I will have to do if I come. He said he was just getting to know their defense, and he said if I get there this summer, I would play next fall."
What new did you learn about Ole Miss? "I did not know about those facilities they have. They have great facilities. Coach Orgeron is a pretty excitable guy. The football players are all nice guys. Their students are exciting to be around. They all tell you that Ole Miss is great. It seems like a great place. The campus is real nice too."
What most stood out about Ole Miss? "The indoor and weight room. How the locker room and everything is together. That place is big, real big. I have never seen any facilities like that."
Before you went on your visit to Ole Miss; what were your looking for? "Their defense, how many cornerbacks they are going to sign, and I also was interested in meeting their whole staff."
What did you learn about Ole Miss' defense? "How they play man 5 yards from the tight ends and wide receivers. I just learned the scheme they run."
Did you like it? "Yes, a lot."
How many CB's did they say they are going to sign? "They are recruiting 5 CB's."
Did that satisfy you? "Yes sir, no matter how many they sign, I will have to compete. But, that is a big part of it too."
What did you think of the Ole Miss staff? "They have a good staff, real good staff. Coach Orgeron makes it interesting. If I go there, he will teach me well, let me have fun, and win games. He is always there to help you too."
How did your meeting with Coach Orgeron go? "It went well. He really wants me to be a part of the Ole Miss family. If I do decide to go there. He said when we make the Sugar Bowl, I can look at him and tell him that I made the right choice. I would love to play for Coach Orgeron."
Did he ask you to commit during the meeting? "No sir."
Where does Ole Miss now stand with you? "They are up there. Me and my daddy have not talked about it, but we both like Ole Miss. When I get back from my USM visit, we will choose Tuesday night."
Reports came out that you are leaning towards MSU; are they true? "State probably has a little over them, but Ole Miss is right up there with State. I really do not know right now. It is too close"
Where do you stand academically? "I need my ACT score. After I combine my tests, it should be better. I take it again on February 12th."
