5-star DB hearing a lot from Clemson

Jacksonville (Fla.) Trinity Christian Academy five-star defensive back Tyreke Johnson has heard plenty from Clemson of late.

“Recently they’ve been on me non-stop, trying to get me to come down there and take a visit and expressing interest,” Johnson told The Clemson Insider.

Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables, safeties coach Mickey Conn and cornerbacks coach Mike Reed have all been in contact, according to Johnson.

“They’re telling me that they want me to come play anything from corner to safety, know all the positions, and I would have a great shot to come in and have an opportunity to start,” he said. “They didn’t say I would start, but I would at least have the opportunity.”

Johnson (6-1, 191) received an offer from Clemson in the spring of 2014.

He has visited Clemson on a couple of occasions, most recently for the Tigers’ game against Florida State in November 2015.

“I loved it,” Johnson said. “It was a lot of energy and it was very family oriented.”

Johnson’s long offer list includes all of the big-name programs such as Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Miami, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Stanford, Southern Cal, Tennessee and UCLA.

He isn’t claiming any leaders right now and doesn’t have a concrete timeframe for his future decision.

“I’m just focusing on football and my team right now,” he said.

Johnson most recently visited Florida this month for its Friday Night Lights recruiting event.

Rivals ranks Johnson as the No. 1 safety and No. 12 overall prospect in the 2018 class.
