A. J. Johnson signs with Tennessee
Linebacker, 6-3, 233
Gainesville, Ga. (Gainesville)
Honors: Ranked the No. 8 inside linebacker in the nation, No. 11 player in Georgia and No. 136 overall player in the nation by Rivals.com ... Considered the No. 6 inside linebacker and No. 126 overall player by 247sports.com … Participated in the Under Armour All-America game.
The skinny: Johnson probably provided UT’s coaches with a big sense of relief when his fax rolled through the machine today. Though he’s been committed for months, Johnson was very open with his recruitment and kept in constant contact with Florida. He had a stand-out performance at last month’s Under Armour All-America game and already looks the part of a college linebacker.
