The Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) Los Osos quarterback, Stephen Johnson, is getting it down on the field…
Johnson Checking Out Schools
Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) Los Osos quarterback Stephen Johnson was out last weekend at the Bonita 7on7 tournament, taking the opportunity to showcase his ball skills. The 6'3", 175 lb. prospect recently picked up his first offer from Alabama State. "They called my dad and emailed me later on that day, so I was excited. They said that they like that I'm a dual-threat quarterback and they like how I could be a game-changer. They want me at their school so I could make big plays and do great things for them," he said. Earlier this month, Johnson participated in the Get It Done Sports Training Camp, held at Fullerton College, which was instructed by the Oregon State coaches. "I think I did really well at the Oregon State camp. Most of my balls were very accurate and Victor Bolden and I were completing a lot of passes. I talked to a lot of the offensive coaches, including their quarterback coach. They said I did really well and they want me to stay in contact," he said. Though he has no other visit plans set quite yet, Johnson is hoping to take a trip east to check out some Ivy League programs and will also potentially attend camp at UC Davis, where he plans to show off his skillset. "I think I can both throw and run the ball pretty well. I'm a true dual-threat quarterback," he said. Johnson may only have one offer under his belt quite yet, but the signal-caller is receiving interest from a good number of programs. "I'm hearing from the University of San Diego, UC Davis, San Jose State, and then Ivy League schools, like Harvard, Princeton, Penn, Cornell, and Brown," he said. As he explores his options, Johnson knows of a few things he's looking for in his future university. "A high academic school, definitely, and somewhere that's just a good place to be. I'll talk to the guys out there, the football team, and see how they like it. I just want a great environment," he said. Aside from working on his recruitment, Johnson has been busy working with his teammates, including talented receiver Victor Bolden, in preparation for his senior season. "Victor and I know each other really well. We've been playing on the same team since seventh grade, so we're good on the field together. I'm most excited about our games versus Upland and Rancho Cucamonga. The past two years we didn't do very well, but I think we can this year. Los Osos isn't a very big team, but we're fast," he said.
