Tight end prospect Will Johnson talks about his visit to Auburn…
Johnson Grabs Another, Prepares SEC Tour
Now holding six BCS scholarship offers, Osseo High tight end Will Johnson is quickly becoming a national prospect. The 6'7, 245-lb junior added an offer from the Iowa Hawkeyes on Thursday night, and it was not something he was expecting. "I was a little surprised," he admitted, "just because they had talked before about maybe having to see more film or seeing me either at our camp at Osseo, which actually ended up being after the recruiting period, or maybe down at one of theirs or some games from senior year, so I was a little surprised, but I was real happy about it too." The Hawkeyes have made a living out of big bodies like Johnson and have also had a nice recent string of tight ends. He visited the campus during the spring and says it was a positive trip. "I actually went over there over spring break, my spring break, and watched one of their spring practices and talked to the coaches and they showed me around the school for a little while. It was real nice. Their football team seemed to really be buying into practice and their tight ends coach was really coaching up the tight ends." While other prospects are readying to camp in pursuit of more offers, Johnson will check out several of the schools that have already offered him, and one who may be close. "I'm not going to any camps right now, but I'm going to be going to Auburn tomorrow and then I'm going to Ole Miss, Boston College, Michigan State, and I'll probably go to Iowa again. For right now that's all. If another offer comes up that I'm interested in, I'll probably check them out too." Johnson believes the Spartans may be the next to offer. "Right now, Michigan State is probably the one that would stand out to me. For awhile Stanford had been talking to me a lot." var VideoMediaID = "907273" var Volume= "0" var MediaDir = "http://video.scout.com/media/"; var VideoURL = MediaDir + "video/flv/" + parseInt( VideoMediaID / 10000 ) + "/" + VideoMediaID + ".flv"; var ImageURL = MediaDir + "video/flv/" + parseInt( VideoMediaID / 10000 ) + "/" + VideoMediaID + "t.jpg"; var so = new SWFObject ('http://cdn-cms.scout.com/swf/flvplayer.swf','mpl','100%','300','2'); so.addParam ('allowscriptaccess','always'); so.addParam ('allowfullscreen','true'); so.addVariable ('height','300'); so.addVariable ('file',VideoURL); so.addVariable ('image',ImageURL); so.addVariable('volume', Volume); so.addVariable('mute', 'false'); so.addVariable ('backcolor','0x000000'); so.addVariable ('frontcolor','0xFFFFFF'); so.addVariable ('lightcolor','0x00FF00'); so.addVariable ('screencolor','0x000000'); so.addVariable('stretching','stretchfit'); so.addVariable('overstretch', 'true'); so.addVariable ('logo','http://media.scout.com/media/a/_network/mediaplayer/scoutTVlogo.png'); so.addVariable ('showstop','true'); so.write ('player'); #84 WILL JOHNSON | TE | Osseo (Minn.)
