2018 Michigan Commit LB Antwuan Johnson Will Visit Toledo, Amongst Others

Antwuan Johnson has been committed to Michigan since March. Over the summer, he plans to visit several Midwest programs, including a southern powerhouse. Is Michigan in a recruiting battle to keep their 2018 linebacker prospect?

2018 Dayton, OH (Dunbar) linebacker Antwuan Johnson has been committed to the Michigan Wolverines since March. As of right now, he is solidly committed to the Wolverines, but that has not stopped the Toledo Rockets and others from pursuing Johnson.

Despite his solid commitment to Michigan, Johnson plans to visit a bunch of other schools during the summer, including Toledo.

“I visited Toledo back in March and it was a really good visit,” Johnson said. “I really connected with the coaches and enjoyed my time there. I really like Toledo as a school and a program, they dominate the MAC conference and I like that.”

Toledo and Michigan aren't the only programs who will get a visit from Johnson over the summer. He plans to head all over the country.

“I plan to head down to Alabama for their football camp on June 17th. I also plan to head up to Iowa sometime in June, Louisville and Kentucky in June. I plan to head up to Toledo over the summer, probably around the same time I will visit Michigan.”

Many schools have informed Johnson that they are going to start to make a run at him within the next few months. As a result, Johnson has come up with a list of his top five schools who he will start to take a deeper look at.

“Indiana informed me that they’re going to go after me until the end. Cincinnati and Coach Koonz wants to recruit me to the end, I have a good relationship with them so they could be a factor for me. My top five right now would be Michigan at the top, Iowa, Indiana, Kentucky, and Cincinnati. With Toledo, Louisville, and Bowling Green on the outside looking in."

Johnson still has a lot of options and programs that he is considering, even though he has a top five with a few schools on the outside looking in. He plans to narrow it down before his senior season in high school.

“I would like to narrow down my list of schools before the start of my senior season. It’s still a long way until National Signing Day, but I want to have it down to a top three or top five.”


Johnson is still committed to Michigan, and he appears to be solidly committed to Michigan. However, he hasn’t taken visits to any other schools besides Toledo and Michigan since March. Now that he will visit several schools over the summer, his commitment to Michigan might start to fade.
