Parkersburg, W.V. offensive guard Justin Johnson is inching towards a decision. The 6-foot-3, 288-pounder is focused on three schools in the final stretch of his recruitment.
"I think I'm going to make my decision in a couple weeks," he said. "I've been thinking about it a lot and I want to clear my mind so I can just play ball.
"I'm looking at Ohio, Marshall and West Virginia, those are my top three."
Johnson claims he has no plans to visit schools except for West Virginia to see his brother Josh Jenkins this Saturday when the Mountaineers face Coastal Carolina.
With the focus on his three offers, what does he like about his finalists?
"For Ohio, I've known the people there a long time since they recruited my brother, while the whole Marshall staff was at West Virginia when they started recruiting me," he stated. "With West Virginia, I've been going up there for years with my brother. Of course being from West Virginia, everybody is a West Virginia fan."
On the field, Johnson opened up the season last Friday as Parkersburg lost 34-19.
"Our offensive line just has to get better, we're not too aggressive," he said. "We are coming together and our running back was hurt, so we'll get things rolling.
"I think I played well offensively. I've gotten a lot stronger from last year and I've worked on my footwork. All summer I've been working on my footwork, conditioning and lifting and it has shown."
