Once in the USFNation top 5 at the QB position, Orhian Johnson is still on the board, but if he hopes to play in Tampa it will likely be at a position other than quarterback.
The 6-foot-4, 190 pounds, runs a 4.51 time in the 40 and boasts a 40-inch vertical leap. He benches 225 pounds and squats 385. It's no wonder the Bulls coaching staff loves his athletic ability. Orhian is the type of athlete that excels every where he plays. Everyone knows him as a QB, but his sophomore year at Boca Ciega he won team MVP as a safety.
"Playing quarterback is important because I really like playing quarterback, but I know I can play a lot of other positions as well," Johnson told Scout.com's Yancey Porter. "Coaches are smart, so they'll find the best place for me. I can't say I will only play quarterback, I need to go out and make the best of it so I can get on the field."
And that's just where teams want him, "On the field".
"I'm getting attention from a bunch of schools right now. By the time the dead period is over I want to have it narrowed down to about 4 or 5 schools."
"I'm going to talk it over with my dad and we're going to figure out who it will be and then I'll start setting up visits."
Johnson recently took a visit to Indiana where he saw snow for the first time.
"That was cool, I've never seen that before." Adding, "It was a good experience, I liked the coaches and the campus was really nice."
Last week Johnson played in the annual Pinellas County All-Star game and afterward received a call from USF offensive coordinator Greg Gregory.
"He called and said he watched the game. He said he liked my athleticism and thought I had a good game."
Is USF a favorite?
"I don't really have a favorite yet, but they are up there. They are the home team. I've always had a spot for USF, they have always been high with me."
Check back with USFNation, after the dead-period we'll catch-up with Orhian and find out who his top schools are.
Will Orhian stay home?
