4-Star CB Jospeh Johnson Includes NC State in Top 4
4-Star 2020 Cornerback Joseph Johnson included NC State in his Top-4 last night alongside Penn State, Ohio State and Texas A&M.
Johnson has taken Official Visits to Texas A&M, NC State and Penn State over the past three weeks. As of now, he doesn’t have one scheduled for Ohio State.
On Thursday, Johnson announced he was moving his commitment date up from June 5th to the 2nd.
Even though the Wolfpack have 3 cornerbacks committed in 2020, in my opinion, there’s no way they don’t take Johnson if he commits.

If it wasn’t already clear, 3-Star 2020 Linebacker Jayland Parker (6’2″/214) announced his Top-3 schools last night, and NC State made the cut along with Colorado and Purdue.
