State champ hearing from the SEC
Tanner (Ala.) High won the 2012 class 2A state championship in the Yellowhammer State because of many seniors on the roster contributing at many different positions. But a sophomore on the team stole the show, as Johnathan Fletcher led the Rattles to the title with efficient offense from his quarterback spot and a pair of interceptions on defense, returning one 44 yards the other way to seal the win over Washington County (Ala.). Versatility is a big part of what the 6-foot, 180 pounder does in any sport. He is a standout on the Tanner hoops and track-and-field teams as well. Football is the future, however, and he's beginning to hear from some big-time schools as the spring evaluation period winds down. The summer camp scene will be big for the projected cornerback. "I spoke to the DB coach from Kentucky [Derrick Ansley] Wednesday," said Fletcher. "They are really interested in me and they are about to start recruiting me heavily. I'm going there July 19 to visit the campus and attend a camp. "On June 14 I'll be at Mississippi State, June 20 at Notre Dame." The SEC has begun to show interest, and now Fletcher is looking for more from the nation's premiere conference as well as one of the hottest program's in all of college sports currently. "I would like to hear from Alabama, South Carolina and Louisville," he admitted. "I love their defenses! "They always have good DB's." Fletcher had 1,500 total yards on offense to go along with 18 touchdowns in 2012, adding 31 tackles and six interceptions on defense.
