Johnstone (6-7, 250) will be a preferred walk-on.

“I’ve been a Clemson Tiger since birth,” the local product told The Clemson Insider. “Staying home and playing for this town and school is a dream that I’ve had for a long time. I knew from the moment that I started playing football that I wanted to play in the orange and purple. Being able to live out that dream is truly a blessing.”

Johnstone chose Clemson over offers from BYU and Stetson.

“The coaches were super excited,” he said. “They really believe in me and believe that I can be a great football player. It’s up to me to match their optimism with hard work.”

Johnstone feels he has a lot to offer the Clemson football program as a player and teammate, on and off the field.

“The biggest thing that I’ll be bringing to the table is the commitment to upholding the Clemson culture and dedicating myself to my teammates and coaches,” he said. “Above all I’m going to help bring championships to this program in whatever way I can.”
