Football: Glassboro's Johnson gets Ohio State offer


By Phil Anastasia

Glassboro junior Juwan Johnson is rising up the football recruiting charts.

Johnson, a two-way star for the defending South Jersey Group 1 champion, picked up an offer from Ohio State on Tuesday, Glassboro coach Mark Maccarone said.

The 6-foot-4, 195-pound Johnson has offers from every Big 10 program, including Penn State, Michigan and Michigan State, as well as Maryland, Georgia Tech, Virginia, Boston College and several others, according to Maccarone.

Johnson is being recruited by most programs as a wide receiver. He also is a top defensive back and kick returner.

Johnson also is a track star who won the Group 1 state title and finished fourth in the Meet of Champions in the 200 meters.

He was limited last football season by a nagging ankle injury but made a major impact in the South Jersey Group 1 title game. He returned an interception 31 yards for a touchown and returned a punt 75 yards for another touchdown.
