Dorian Johnson sets two official visits
By Jared Shanker
One of the top remaining targets for Ohio State and Pittsburgh has set official visits to both schools.
ESPN 150 offensive tackle Dorian Johnson (Belle Vernon, Pa./Belle Vernon) will officially visit Pitt the weekend of Nov. 16. His official visit to Ohio State will take place the weekend of Dec. 7, he told ESPN.com in a text message.
Johnson has Pitt as his top school with Ohio State close behind.
The Pitt coaches will be able to put the full-court press on Johnson that weekend as the Panthers are on a bye. Along with fellow Pittsburgh-area prospect Robert Foster, Johnson is a top priority for the Panthers. He unofficially visited Pitt earlier this season for the game against Virginia Tech in September.
The Buckeyes will also receive an unofficial visit from Johnson on Nov. 24 for the Michigan game. He unofficially visited Ohio State for the Nebraska game Oct. 6.
Johnson said he is still working out a date to officially visit his No. 3 school, Virginia Tech.
Asked when he plans a decision, Johnson answered "around mid-December."
