Johnson, Hazelton biding time 

October, 25, 2005
Spoke with Stafon Johnson's (Los Angeles, Dorsey) dad Stan this morning, and he is as elusive as his son. Not really, but seriously, they are taking things slow and obviously because of the proximity, he is taking unofficials to UCLA and USC. The nation's No. 2 RB has scheduled a visit to Cal on 12/10/2005 and is in the process of setting up visits to either Miami or Florida. He also still likes Ohio State but has not shcduled a visit as of yet. He is in no hurry to make his decision and is focusing on his senior season right now.

Johnson suffered a lacerated hand two weeks ago and missed the following week but played this past weekend. He is a bit frustrated because the dressing protecting his hand hinders his movement and ability to carry the ball. It has been an adjustment, and he is getting used to it. Johnson has been playing safety and corner as well and matched up with 2006 prospect Tyquan Knox last week.

In our opinion, Johnson may be the best pure runner in this class.
