OSU pledge Johnson visits Tennessee
By Brad Bournival
The rumors were out there that Trey Johnson (Lawrenceville, Ga./Central Gwinnett) was visiting another school, and they were refuted earlier in the weekend. But on Sunday, they were confirmed. Johnson was in Knoxville, Tenn., over the weekend. Should Buckeyes fans be worried about the pledge of the top-rated linebacker in their class?
Wilbur Johnson Jr., Trey's father, said Johnson's trip was more to just have a good time and talk shop with the Volunteers.
“The kid is 18 years old,” Wilbur said. “He and I have always been up front with each other. He wanted to go. He and the [Tennessee] linebackers coach have been friends -- maybe not friends, but through the recruiting process have known each other for a long time.
