Jacksonville (Fla.) Ed White offensive guard Kaleb Johnson is finally hitting the road this weekend. The 6-foot-4, 270-pound lineman has scheduled his first official visit, heading north to an Atlantic Coast Conference school.
"I am taking an official visit to North Carolina this weekend," Johnson said. "That is my first official visit. My mom kind of grew up with one of the coaches up there and he has been trying to get me to visit for a long time. So my mom kind of set it up."
The coach at North Carolina that Johnson's family is familiar with is Troy Douglas.
In addition to the Tar Heels, the three-star lineman is getting attention from a handful of other schools.
"I am also talking with South Carolina, Rutgers, Georgia Tech, and Louisville," Johnson said. "I think they will all get officials. I also want to take an official visit to Arkansas too. I haven't set any dates up yet though."
The contact has been pretty regular from all of the aforementioned schools according to Johnson.
"I am hearing from Georgia Tech once a week, South Carolina still calls a lot and the Rutgers coaches like me a lot too," Johnson said. "So everybody is recruiting me a lot."
Johnson said his decision will likely come after his official visits, but that he knows what he is looking for in the school he will ultimately opt for.
"It is the people I am going to be around and the lifestyle," Johnson said. "That is going to be the biggest thing for me, with me transitioning from high school to college."
As a senior, Johnson has helped lead White to an 8-2 regular season record and they will host Crawfordville (Fla.) Wakulla in the opening game of the playoffs next Friday.
