It has been a long time coming but the wait is over for 2015 Marlboro County QB/ATH London Johnson. On Thursday he got his first FBS offer and the super athletic prospect filled us in on that and all the rest.
Johnson broke down exactly how he feels about his latest offer from Army.
"There's not enough adjectives to describe my feelings toward that FBS offer from Army! This is big for me and like I told you back in the summer, I was waiting on that big FBS offer. To get this offer from Army holds a lot of weight to me."
The 2015 prospect has been on their radar for a while and the feeling has been mutual apparently.
"Ever since the interest I started receiving from them I've really looked into them. I watched them play on television as well. That triple option is a great fit. You could never know what to expect from them as a defense. Also the post grad opportunities that comes along with going there, the opportunities are endless!"
Johnson had little hesitation when asked if he planned on taking a visit to Army in the near future.
Other schools that have been pursuing Johnson of late are Hampton, Presbyterian, Charleston Southern, Newberry, and others. He told us which ones are coming after him the hardest right now.
"Army and Charleston Southern are recruiting me the hardest right now."
"I took a visit to Charleston Southern a few weeks ago. The way they are winning and competing against larger schools speaks a lot about their program and the determination the team has. It says a lot about what the coaches instill into them."
It hasn't been an easy season thus far for Johnson and Marlboro County as their record is 2-5 overall and 1-1 in region play. The 2015 prospect has managed to do everything he can to help his team improve moving forward.
So far Johnson has 685 passing yards with 6 touchdowns and he's also rushed for 185 yards and scored 2 rushing touchdowns.
As for other visits aside from one to Army Johnson says he may try and see Hampton in Virginia.
His offers include Army, Charleston Southern, Newberry, and Union (KY). The talented prospect says there is one school out there he'd love to hear more from down the stretch of his senior season.
"I'd like to hear more from North Carolina."
