Junior offensive linemen Davion Johnson of Byhalia (Miss.) already is getting offers, but he isn't getting a big head. When he analyzes his play, he sees plenty of room for improvement.
"I feel like I'm playing well, but I think I should get better at staying low," Johnson said. "That's my biggest thing."
The 6-feet-4, 315-pound Johnson, a three-year starter, claims offers from Arkansas, Memphis, Mississippi and Mississippi State. The Razorbacks pulled the trigger first, back when Johnson was a sophomore. Mississippi State was the most recent to offer, doing so this summer.

Johnson thinks Alabama could be next.
"It seems like they really like me," Johnson said. "Mississippi State and Alabama are recruiting me the hardest. I'm hearing a lot from them."
Asked if anyone stood out, Johnson replied, "I can't really say right now. There's a lot of options out there. It's too early." That said, he admittedly grew up an Alabama fan.
According to Johnson, coaches from Mississippi and Mississippi State have seen him play in person this fall. Now, he wants to start seeing what the schools pursuing him have to offer.
"I'm planning on going to a few Mississippi State games, and I'm trying to catch an Alabama game," Johnson said. "I talked to my coach. I'm trying to go to the Alabama-LSU game."
Each of the programs recruiting Johnson like him at tackle, he said. He plays right tackle for Byhalia.
"I'm kind of physical and quick," Johnson said. "I've got good movement."
