Dallas Carter strongside defensive end Ryan Johnson is a big reason for one of the biggest turnarounds in the state of Texas.
Year in and year out Carter has been one of the best programs in the state, but the last few years they had struggled. But this season they are a perfect 10-0 and heading into the first round of the Texas state playoffs in two weeks.
“We’re off this week, so we get to prepare for the playoffs,” Johnson, a 6-foot-5, 240-pound beast of a defensive end, said. “We’re probably going to play Richardson Berkner. I don’t know a whole lot about them yet, other than we’re going to have to play great.”
Johnson said he’s had a little while to focus on his recruitment and has figured out what five schools he wants to visit.
“I have so many teams calling and offering that it’s been tough to list them all,” Johnson said. “But I’m going to take visits to Tulane, Oklahoma State, Kansas State, Ohio State and Miami. Ohio State and Miami haven’t offered, but the other three have.”
Along with plenty of others, who see the potential in Johnson and know that he’s not quite a finished product.
Last update, Johnson said Oklahoma State and K-State were his top two teams, and it looks like that hasn’t changed.
“They’re both still up there,” Johnson said. “I want to go somewhere like that to help them beat Oklahoma. I don’t like Oklahoma.”
