Michael Johnson Commits To Florida State

Michael Johnson

Michael Johnson, a defensive back recruit from Miami (Fla.) Booker T. Washington High school, has committed to Florida State, sources confirmed today. Johnson is unrated as of yet by any of the major services, which is unsurprising given that it is 11 months until next signing day.

Johnson stands 5'10" and weighs 170 pounds. He'll need to keep growing to play safety at the next level, but Johnson definitely has room to do so. Johnson's best attribute is probably his instincts. His highlight film is one clip after another of him making plays (see inside). Johnson doesn't appear to be an elite, but he certainly isn't a scrub, either. There's definitely space on the roster for a defensive back with excellent instincts and good tackling ability. He'll likely be rated as a high three-star recruit. It's also worth noting that if Johnson doesn't win a starting job, he could fill the role of a fifth defensive back.

Tomahawk Nation currently projects that Florida State will take at least five defensive backs in this class. The 'Noles currently have two in Johnson and cornerback Sojourn Shelton.

Johnson is also a teammate of stud linebacker recruit Matthew Thomas and offensive line recruit Denver Kirkland, both of whom are considering the 'Noles.

Here is a recap of Florida State's class:

OFFENSIVE LINE Austin Golson (Tackle)
DEFENSIVE LINE Maquedius Bain (Tackle)
DEFENSIVE LINE Deadrin Senat (Tackle)
DEFENSIVE BACK Sojourn Shelton (Cornerback)
DEFENSIVE BACK Michael Johnson (Corner/Safety)

(h/t: Noles 247)
