I spent a few hours of my night yesterday watching the Gainesville High School spring scrimmage game up at beautiful City Park in downtown Gainesville. Not so surprisingly the place was peppered with college coaches, and I even got the chance to talk to Al Groh for several minutes (Ga Tech's new defensive coordinator). Of the 6 or so college coaches present, they were pretty much all there to get a glimpse of AJ Johnson, the excellent middle linebacker from GHS. Johnson has too many offers to mention, but still no offer from the Dawgs. I am really confused, so I was hoping that some of you may be able to shed some light on this situation.
I coached AJ from 7th-10th grade, and knew from day one that the kid was something special. Not only is he a physical beast, but more importantly he is a great kid that takes care of academics. If anyone out there has any say in anything UGA recruiting, please enlighten me as to why we are missing the boat!
On another note, the upcoming freshman QB from Gainesville absolutely stole the show at the scrimmage last night! Even the college coaches were talking primarily about this kid after watching him put on a clinic for 4 quarters! Look out for Deshaun Watson in the near future because I predict a top 10 national ranking for this kid if things keep progressing and basketball doesn't steal him away!
