I have heard that the Bobcat football staff is recruiting Darien Johnson of Bishop Amat high school in La Puente, California. Depending on whom you talk to the 5-9 175 Johnson is either a wide receiver or defensive back prospect. He is an explosive athlete who has played most of the skilled position save quarter back for Bishop Amat high school.
Out of the back field he had 19 carries this season for 109 yards. As a receiver he had 32 receptions for a total of 382 yards.
As a defensive back he had 35 solo tackles and 19 assists for a total of 54 total tackles, and 3 interceptions one that was returned 79 yards for a touch down.
On special teams he 8 punt returns for an average 21 yards a return and 1 touch down. As a kick off return man he was even more dangerous returning 14 kickoffs for a 36 yard per return average with 3 of them going for touch downs from the 85, 90 and 99 yards.
Where ever he ends up playing in college the expectation is that he has what football people call “big play” capability.
Johnson currently holds offers from Montana State, New Mexico, Portland State, Sacramento State, Northern Arizona and New Mexico State. I have heard though that New Mexico and New Mexico State are the leaders for his services and they are the only two schools he currently has visits set up with.
