Bartow High is coming off their best season in a decade and a big reason for their success this past…
All-Combine WR Has Three Offers
Malcolm Johnson went into last weekend's Scout.com Combine not knowing what to expect. "I had never been to a combine like that," Johnson said. "The other ones I went to all we did was do the testing. When we did the one-on-ones, I was real excited because I knew I could show people what I can do." He did just that. At 6-foot-1 and 151 pounds (his weight is down because he's in the middle of track season), Johnson was impressive enough to be a member of the All-Combine Team. "I'm real happy about that," he said. "I saw so many great players out there. The other receiver who made it, Lemar Griffin, is from up here and we actually ran together at a track meet (last night)." The talented receiver is hoping his performance can land him some more offers. He has three right now. "UCF was my first offer," he said. "I'm talking to coach David Kelly. I went to their Junior Day and met all the coaches. They met my parents. As a whole coaching staff, they watched my film and then offered me a scholarship." Not long after UCF offered, a big one came in. "About a month or so ago, I got offered by Miami," he said. "I'm talking to Coach Mosely. My cousin (Lance Leggett) goes there and they always put out good receivers. I'm gonna try getting down soon to watch one of their spring practices." Offer number three came in about three weeks ago and it was from another ACC program. "Virginia Tech was most recent," he said. "I'm talking to coach Torrian Gray there. I don't know as much about them but I know they have a good program." With those three offers in hand, Johnson's hoping to land a couple more. "Florida wants me to come to their camp so they can see me in person," he said. "My top three are Georgia, Miami, and Florida. With Georgia, I just really like watching them on TV. They have a great atmosphere but I've never been there so I dont know what it's like. Florida State and UCF would round out my top five."
