Penn State Recruiting: Dorian Johnson Names a Top Four


One of Penn State’s top targets, offensive tackle Dorian Johnson has narrowed down his list of suitors. Dorian told Silver Bullet Recruiting that he will be deciding between Ohio State, Penn State, Pitt and West Virginia.

Dorian has visited Pitt on a number of occasions as he lives nearby. He has also been to Penn State three times since February 18th, including trips on back-to-back weeks in April.

Johnson went on to tell SBR that he intends to visit both West Virginia and Ohio State in June following a trip to Pitt this Friday. No word on whether or not he will visit Penn State again before announcing his decision.

He recently told me that he hoped to make his decision sometime in June or July and he confirmed that in this report.

The Belle Vernon native was recently named the number two offensive tackle in the country by 247Sports, as well as the number two overall player in the state of Pennsylvania and 11th ranked overall player in the country. Needless to say, it would be a huge accomplishment by the PSU coaching staff to land the 6’5″ in-state prospect.
