Does Heisman impact Stafon?

Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey running back Stafon Johnson has done nothing but prove himself worthy of his five star status. And although his playing days at Dorsey are done, he must now shift his attention towards recruiting and finding a new school to call home for the next four years. Johnson recently took in the Heisman Trophy ceremony, and came away very impressed.

When asked whether or not Reggie Bush winning the heisman would have any impact on his decision. He responded,

"If anything, it would help them (USC) and my decision. Considering that he is a back that came from USC, and got that high of an accomplishment. And also considering they do look there for things like that. And I mean, why not give him the award, hes a great back."

In Dorsey's heartbreaking semi-final loss to Crenshaw, Johnson suffered a badly sprained ankle. But the injury will not keep him from participating in the Army All-American Game in San Antonio, on January 7th.

"My goal is to be able to play in that game. My ankle is healing up great, I'm off crutches and starting to walk on it more on my own without a limp. Its actually been feeling better and my goal is to be good for the 26th. Im working hard with my trainer to get back to my normal self, cutting and all that. I probably won't be a 100%, but I should be able to get out there and move around a bit."

Johnson is currently in the process of setting up official visits, and admits that things have been suprisingly quiet lately.

"Naw, nothing much is happening for me as of now recruiting wise. I'm currently in the process of setting up a few official visits, and I'm not quite sure who there going to be to yet. I should know pretty soon though."

Johnson plans on announcing his college destination on or around signing day. So do not expect him to end the recruiting process any time soon.
