Jake Johnson is a four-star tight end prospect and plays for Oconee County High School in Bogart, Georgia. To no surprise, some of the nation’s top college football programs are after him.
TE Jake Johnson Recruiting
To date, Johnson has received offers from Alabama, Clemson, East Carolina, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Maryland, Miami, Michigan, Penn State, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia Tech.
The LSU Tigers seem to have the advantage over all of these schools for one big reason: the team signed Jake’s brother, quarterback Max Johnson, in 2020.
LSU’s football recruiting has been exceptional in recent years, and Johnson may be another reason to celebrate in Baton Rouge.
TE Jake Johnson Highlights
At 6-foot-5 and 210 pounds already, Jake Johnson has the size and speed to succeed in the NCAA. He looked great at preseason showcase tournaments, and that has translated to his on-field results.
In his high school career, he has hauled in 20 touchdowns. He also gets reps as a linebacker on defense, but his future is at tight end.
247Sports currently tabs him as the third-best tight end in the entire 2022 class. He has shown an ability to be his team’s primary offensive target, but if he does indeed join LSU, that pressure won’t be nearly as evident as it is for his high school team.
Jake Johnson has football in his blood. Tight ends are few and far between in high school football, and if he can make good on his potential, the NFL Draft may be a realistic expectation for him.
Being able to catch passes from his brother at LSU would be heartwarming, but his recruitment isn’t set in stone yet. He has multiple suitors and should make an impact when he decides to sign.
