Junior QB Kevin Johnson of Atlanta, whose father played at USC, holds offers from USC and Boston College. He went up to BC last weekend and plans to be at USC for the Clemson game. He also visited USC for the Vanderbilt game.

Johnson said his trip to Chestnut Hill last weekend went well. "It was real nice. They have good academics and the coach is changing the program around."

While he has a USC offer, Johnson said the Gamecocks wouldn't take his offer right now. "They are telling me it's a numbers, a waiting game," he said. "They have a 2014 commit and they will wait until after their season. I'm coming down for junior day and we'll see what happens. Coach Ward has offered but coach Mangus has to sign off on it."

Johnson is also drawing interest from Notre Dame, Miami, Yale, NC State, West Virginia and Southern Cal. He doesn't have favorites. "I'm taking my time and being patient," he said.

Johnson is a pocket passer and not much of a runner. This season he has 24 touchdowns passing and 2 running.
