Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in and around the region of Central Virginia. Continuing our countdown at number 4 is Life Christian defensive back Joe Johnson, III.
#4 Joe Johnson, III (2020 DB 6-3 180) – Life Christian Academy
LIFE is extremely good for many of the players at Life Christian Academy. Earlier in our countdown, we featured Michael James (#17), A.J. Webb (#9), and Gerrian Christopher (#8). Now we have arrived at our #4 senior prospect for the class of 2020, Penn State commit Joe Johnson III (DB 6-3 180).
Back in April, Johnson originally pledged his commitment to N.C. State, but one month later he was back on the market. At one time he held double digit offers from the likes of WVU, Indiana, Florida, Florida State, UVA, and Virginia Tech. However, his final four came down to N.C. State, Texas A&M, Ohio State, and Penn State.
With his commitment to the Nitty Lions, Johnson will join Atlee High School athlete Tyler Warren (6-5 200) who was ranked #11 on our Fab 30 list.
Life Christian Academy will have a lot of travel on their plate this season and will challenge themselves completely with their schedule. In only their second year of existence, Life Christian will compete against perennial powers DeMatha (Washington D.C.), The Hun School (Princeton, N.J.), IMG Academy (Bradenton, Florida), and St. Frances Academy (Baltimore, MD).
