Maryland Safety John Johnson Commits To Boston College Football

The Eagles football program added two new members of the secondary on Monday, receiving a commitment from Virginia's Atem Ntantang and Maryland safety John Johnson. Johnson is a 6-foot-1, 180 pounder from Hyattsville's Northwestern High School. Boston College was the third Division I-A program to offer Johnson, who chooses the Heights over claimed offers from Bucknell, Buffalo, Lehigh and Ohio.

Johnson recently visited the school and committed to the program on Monday. He was one of the top performers at Boston College's camp in late June ($). Academics was a big part of Johnson's recruitment and decision process ($).

He's the first of the class from the state of Maryland and the first player plucked out of the Free State since the Eagles nabbed Eldersburg, Maryland product Josh Bordner. After landing three Maryland recruits in the 2008 class - RB Josh Haden, DT Bryan Murray and DB Okechuckwu Okoroha - the program hasn't had much success recruiting Maryland over the last 3-4 classes. Let's hope that Johnson and Ntantang's commitments mean that there's more to come for Boston College football recruiting the DMV.

Johnson is the third defensive back recruited for the Class of 2013, joining Orlando's Matt Milano and Purcellville's Atem Ntantang.

Welcome to the Heights, John!
