AC Flora WR Denzel Johnson made more improvement on his last ACT and according to his coach should be qualified at the end of May as long as there’s no slippage in his regular grades. And that possibly will mean Johnson suiting up for Clemson this fall.
“He did improve on his ACT and is going to take the SAT next month,” Flora coach Reggie Shaw said. “His grades are looking real good. I spoke with Clemson last week and right now if he maintains there’s a good chance they will have something for him in May. He’s going to qualify by the skin of his teeth if he maintains his current grades with that score. We want to get him some breathing room so they are encouraging him to keep taking the test because that makes it easier on their part because he’s one they’ll have to lobby to get approved.”
Shaw said his latest information from USC, dating back to Signing Day, was that the Gamecocks suggested Johnson go to Georgia Military JC first. But Johnson has since heard from Steve Spurrier Jr. and said he was told the Gamecocks would be interested in taking him if he gets fully qualified.
Shaw said Georgia Southern just recently came on board with an offer.
As for his juniors, Shaw said his QB Brendan Greene (6-1 185) is hearing from Appalachian State, Liberty and Old Dominion. Last season he passed for 2100 yards, 18 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. And his TE PJ Holliday (6-2 225) is also drawing some early interest from mid-major programs.
