It looks like if he waits too long there won't be a spot available for him if it's not taken already.

Really hope we're still able to land him. It's not often you have the chance to get a 6'2" corner from one of the best high school programs in the country.

Yea I know. Seems for sure he is having 2nd thoughts now probably from the 2 recent DB commits.

If the coaches have Arnette higher on their board than Alexander should they have held off on giving Alexander a committable offer? Seems obvious that Alexander would flip to us at anytime.

I just hope we didn't blow it with Arnette because of 5 possibly 6 DBs. Then again do you want someone who doesn't want to compete?

From what was reported earlier this week Alexander became an immediate take after his camp performance.

Yea I understand that but he's either higher or lower on the board than Arnette. If Arnette is higher and they have a thought Alexander's commitment may jeopardize Arnette who I'm sure already informed staff he was committing this wknd. Why make the offer then? Oh well, maybe they had no idea Arnette would delay.

Maybe it was a surprise to Arnette that Johnson committed and that's what has him thinking.

The latter part of your post is my guess as well. I'm sure Stoops (or UK's recruiter) dialed him up real fast after we got Johnson.

Default Re: 2015 - Damon Arnette

I'm a little confused by what I read recently. I read somewhere from one insider that both Arnette and Thompson are takes, then this morning that only 1 will be taken. If that's the case, then I guess it will be Thompson if he commits on Friday, b/c Arnette said he's going to take a visit to UK before he decides.

Tony Morrell clarified that USC will be taking 5 DBs (Fields, Wilder, Alexander, Thompson, Arnette).

I think Stoops had a scoop on what was about to transpire before Octavis' announcement since Damon was supposedly set to announce early afternoon then got pushed back to evening then a "hold on, I want to visit uk first". Either way, Damon found out before Octavis announced unless Mr. Arnette never set yesterday as an announcement date.

Does Damon understand that Octavis has been "brought in" as an ATH not as another DB? To me, that is what the young man needs to know and believe.

I agree. Hopefully that would help. But I'm sure Stoopsie is telling him the opposite

According to a commitment article written on Johnson he believes he will be a corner. Will see if i can find the article.

Edit: Here is the article from GGC:

Quote:
Gamecocks land Georgia athlete Octavis Johnson

BY PHIL KORNBLUT

USC gained its second commitment of the day Monday night from athlete Octavis Johnson (6-0 183) of Homerville, GA.

Johnson revealed his commitment on Twitter, joining DB Jaire Alexander of Charlotte as new Gamecock commitments Monday. And he could eventually join Alexander in the Gamecock secondary.

The Gamecocks now have 19 commitments for their class, 18 of them from out of state.

As recently as last week the four-star prospect had declared Tennessee as his favorite. He made the statement shortly after a visit to Knoxville. Johnson also had offers from Clemson, Auburn, Ole Miss, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Florida State, Missouri and Texas A&M.

He narrowed his list to USC, Clemson and Tennessee before announcing for the Gamecocks. He visited USC last football season and he visited Clemson and Tennessee this spring.

"He had been thinking about South Carolina for awhile and South Carolina was always in his top three," said Clinch County assistant coach Rance Morgan. "He visited Tennessee a couple of weeks ago but kept thinking about South Carolina. He's been following recruiting and seeing the commitments picking up and he had to protect himself. He didn't want anything to slip away so he went ahead and pulled the trigger."

Carrying the athlete label, Johnson is considered someone who can play several positions, but his coach says he wants to play cornerback at USC and that's what they recruited him for.

"The wide receiver coach wants him to think about playing on the other side, but he wants to play cornerback," Morgan said. "His favorite player is Champ Bailey."

Given that his favorite player is a former Georgia star and that he recently was favoring Tennessee, the question is, will Johnson's commitment to USC hold up?

"I think it will stick," Morgan said. "He liked South Carolina from the beginning. Coach Botkin has done a good job."

Johnson and some of his teammates will be at USC for a camp July 25th.

Johnson also has a highly coveted junior teammate in DE Chauncy Manac who counts USC and Clemson among his early offers.

scratch Thompson and add Micah Abernathy....by the way, Johnson's coach said he thought he was a better DB than an offensive player.
