Missouri Football Recruiting: Roderick Johnson Visits Illinois

2014 offensive tackle Roderick Johnson unofficially visited the Illinois Fighting Illini on March 2nd.

Johnson has offers from eight teams. The teams to have offered at him include: Missouri, Florida State, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Tennessee, and Texas A&M.

It is projected that Johnson is heavily interested in the Missouri Tigers.

Also, he has not received offers, but is receiving interest from the Arkansas Razorbacks, the Illinois Fighting Illini, and the Oklahoma Sooners.

Johnson is a 6’7″, 310 pound offensive tackle from Florissant, Missouri. He played this past season at Hazelwood Central High School.

Hazelwood Central made it into the Class 6 Missouri State Playoffs. They made it to the second round, but lost to DeSmet Jesuit, 30-40.

Johnson is being recruited by Cornell Ford of Missouri, Eric Johnson of Iowa, Kerry Coombs of Michigan State, and Bill Bedenbaugh of Oklahoma.

The four-star recruit is currently ranked 2nd in the state of Missouri, 8th among offensive tackles, and 84th nationally among 2013 high school recruits by 247Sports.
