Surprise PSU Visitor

When former Penn State player Al Golden accepted the Temple head coaching job it got bad for the Cavaliers, now another Nittany Lion alum has joined Golden and things have gotten worse.

Last weekend, Cedric Jeffries a Virginia commit visited Penn State now we have learned that George Johnson another New Jersey native and early Virginia commit will visit University Park this weekend.

We learned recently that George Johnson a 6-foot-4, 235 pound, defensive end prospect from Glassboro, N.J., who committed earlier in the year to the Virginia Cavaliers, will take an official visit to Penn State this weekend.

"Penn State offered me about three or four months ago," Johnson said. "Coach (Ron) Vanderlinden has been recruiting me. I just want to take a look at them before I make my final decision. Penn State has been recruiting me all year, so I need the trip to see if my choice is right."

Johnson has been accumulating a number of post season awards including first team All-County, first team All-Conference, Group One All-South Jersey. He was selected by the South jersey Touchdown Club as its Lineman of the Year, and the Gloucester County Times selected him as its Defensive player of the year. After he recorded 72 tackles including 56 solos and 10 sacks. Johnson also plays tight end for Glassboro and he caught 12 passes for 446 yards and six touchdowns.
