Happy 4th of July and Quinten Johnson Commits

Commit-a-palooza doesn't stop it just pauses for a few days!

Michigan landed Nike Opening Invite and 3 Star DB Quinten Johnson on Tuesday.  QJ seems a bit under ranked at the moment getting 3 stars across the board but receiving an invite to the premier camp/event of the summer.  

He got to the Opening doing this a the Nike camp in Vegas He started the day off with a bang and had the top testing score in the event with a 125.70 Rating. At a rocked out 5-11, 195 pounds, Johnson clocked a 4.48-40, 4.17 shuttle, threw the power ball 47.5’ and jumped 35” in the vertical.

He was equally impressive in the position and one on one drills and showed the ability to play corner or safety. He has a safety frame but showed very good feet and quickness and plays with a nice physical edge to his game.

That doesn't sound like a 3 star player to me?  But the best way to confirm is the offers.   He has offers from the likes of Alabama, Arizona, UNC,  Penn State, Maryland, BC, Virginia and others.   His offer list was growing and his Bama offer came after preforming at their camp.   So the coaches got to see him up close and personal.

After the Bama offer and the Opening performance, I expect Johnson is headed to a 4th star on one or two of the services.

Johnson is also an athlete that can play offense or defense and can line up at CB, Safety, or even Viper for the Wolverines in the future.   A player with that type of flexibility is a Harbaugh trade mark  His main recruiter is Coach Partridge which might show that the Wolverines are thinking Viper for young man from DC.

I expect the Wolverines and Commit-a-palooza is done for awhile, but you never know!  

  • Shea Patterson signs a tiny contract with the Texas Rangers for some reason.   I guess if football doesn't work out, he can go Tim Tebow or a reverse Drew Henson.

Enjoy the 4th everyone!
