Isaiah Johnson is a very good safety prospect from the Peach State. Johnson, 6-2 and 185 pounds, is from Tyrone (Ga.) Sandy Creek High School. He can play either position at safety.
"Actually, I play both positions," Johnson said. "Some schools like me as a free safety and the others like me at strong safety. I prefer free but it doesn't matter. Whatever is available I will play. I am good in coverage because I play with instincts. I am also good in run support. I will come up and make the tackle. I don't miss many."
According to Johnson he has 15 scholarship offers, including offers from Georgia, Miami, Georgia Tech, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, and South Carolina.

"I am pretty open with everyone, although I would say Georgia Tech is atop my list. I love the coaching staff. Every time I am there they show me so much love, if I don't get the love from the others than I know where I am going. It also helps that Georgia Tech is in Atlanta and just down the street for me. I mean that's a good thing but it's not everything."
So who else is in the mix for this safety prospect from Sandy Creek?
"Tomorrow I will sit down with my coach and decide who I will visit this summer. In a perfect world I would like to decide by the end of the summer, unless a few teams say I can take my time. I would love to make official visits and take advantage of it.
"Right now it looks like my top teams are Georgia Tech, Georgia, Miami, Stanford, and Vandy."
Johnson has visited Georgia Tech and Duke this spring. He carries a 3.7 grade point average and 1300 SAT. Last season as a junior he recorded 53 tackles and seven interceptions.
