Michigan has had much success recruiting California over the years. The Wolverines have struck again and landed one of the biggest sleepers in the state this year.
Johnny Sears a 6-foot-1, 175 pound corner from Fresno (Calif.) Edison announced for the Wolverines earlier this week.
“Johnny is as good a corner as we have had here,” Assistant head coach and defensive back coach Tony Perry said. “He transferred last year from Fresno (Calif.) McClain and wasn’t eligible to play for us.”
“We have known about Johnny for years,” Perry said. “He was a local Pop Warner legend around here. He’s a legit 4.4 guy in the forty and can slam dunk a basketball with either hand.”
“Johnny ran a 4.47 at the USC skills camp and jumped a 34-inch vertical,” Perry said. “He was also the MVP of Fresno State’s camp.”
“Ron English (Michigan DB coach) has known about Johnny for years now,” Perry said. “English came to the school and loved him.”
“Ron told us that he was going to be offering Johnny, and we told him that when he gets his offer, he would jump on it,” Perry said. “And that is exactly what he did.”
After getting shut out of California last recruiting season, Michigan is back on track in the Golden State with this pledge.
