OL Ronald Johnson (6-6 296) of Lower Richland is still looking for his first offer. He is hearing from Clemson, USC, Georgia Tech, and Alabama among others according to his coach Wayne Farmer. “He is learning a new blocking system,” said Farmer. “He did a lot of zone-blocking in the spread last year but we’re going to a Wing T. He is learning to drive-block more and is picking it up fast.” Johnson attended junior days and USC and Georgia Tech but missed Clemson’s junior day due to a death in the family. “Clemson is showing a lot of interest in Ronald,” said Farmer. “We’re going to get up there for a camp this summer.” Johnson will camp at USC, Georgia Tech, and Tennessee this summer as well. Farmer did not indicate a favorite.
DB Ronald Geohaghan Jr. (6-1 189) of Allendale-Fairfax is sitting on seven offers right now and is keeping his mind open when it comes to favorites. He has offers from Clemson, USC, Illinois, Kentucky, East Carolina, Tulane and NC State. He has been to Clemson, USC and Georgia Tech and will visit NC State March 26th. As for the in state schools, Geohaghan says it’s too soon to form an opinion. “I like both a lot,” he said. “I like the head coaches and the staffs. Growing up in South Carolina, it’s going to be hard to make a decision on who I like the most. Wherever the perfect fit is for me.” Geohaghan said he and his family had the chance to meet with Clemson coach Dabo Swinney in his office while there for junior day. He has not yet met USC coach Steve Spurrier. Both schools have invited him to a one day camp this summer. Geohaghan said he does not have any leaders right now. “I like all the schools that have offered,” he said. “I’m going to take my time and see what they all have to offer.” Geohaghan plays strong safety and had 97 tackles and 7 sacks last season.
