Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey has been a football talent factory for years and once again the Dons have players who are destined for D-I scholarships. One of them will no doubt be athlete/running back/cornerback Jeremiah Johnson (5-10, 190, 4.4).
Johnson rushed for 1,295 yards and 20 touchdowns while splitting time with junior to be running back Stafon Johnson.
Johnson didn’t play much defense as a junior but he is penciled in as a two-way starter as a senior.
As a junior, Johnson was selected all-city, all-region, all-league and was second-team all-state underclassmen while playing for a team that had a 12-1 record.
Dorsey’s only loss came in the Los Angeles City Section semi-final against eventual city champ Carson 19-18.
On the recruiting front Johnson is being looked at both running back and cornerback. Johnson prefers running back however.
Johnson also has a pair of soft hands to go with his running abilities.
Johnson has good bloodlines, his older brother, Jerome Johnson, is a freshman fullback for the Oregon Ducks and was a standout linebacker at Dorsey two years ago.
Johnson has a bench of 270, squat 315 and has recorded a 31.7 vertical jump.
This Dorsey star is getting mail from Oregon, Washington, USC, UCLA, Arizona, Illinois, Michigan and Boston College.
What is Johnson looking for in a school?
“First of all, I want a school that will be strong in my major,” Johnson said. “Second I want to go to a school that isn’t afraid of playing freshmen.”
