4-Star CB Joseph Johnson is Taking an Official Visit to NC State this Weekend



He might have de-committed from the Wolfpack on May 8th, but 4-Star 2020 Cornerback Joseph Johnson (6’3″/180) will be back in Raleigh this weekend on an Official Visit.

Before Johnson was an NC State Verbal Commit, he was verbally committed to Tennessee.

Johnson is planning on making his FINAL decision on July 5th at 5pm. He took an Official Visit to Texas A&M last weekend, and left with an offer. His 3rd scheduled Official Visit is next weekend (June 21st) at Penn State.

It will be interesting to see if Johnson takes a 4th or 5th Official Visit before his commitment date.

247Sports ranks Johnson as a 4-Star prospect, the #250 overall player in the 2020 recruiting class nationally, the #20 cornerback, and the #7 player in the state of Virginia.

Johnson had 40 tackles, 4 pass breakups and 2 interceptions for Life Christian Academy (Chester, VA) as a Junior this past season. He earned 2nd Team All-State this past season as a Junior.
