I just got off the phone with Nick Johns and he had some pretty good things to say after Coach Mallory stopped in to see him today.
Coach Mallory came in to see me today so that was good. We talked about me maybe coming up for the junior day, which I doubt I'll make just because of the distance. He just came to talk to me and wants me to get in touch with Coach Nussmeier and hopefully I'll pick up an offer. Coach Mallory said that he'll talk with Coach Nussmeier about coming down to watch me throw so that should be good. He also said that he wants me to start calling him once a week and he's going to get me Coach Nussmeier's number so I can start calling him too. Hopefully I can pick that offer up, it would be great! Michigan would definitely be one of my top schools. If I do get that offer it would definitely be a place I'd consider committing to.
Johns resides in Leesburg, Virginia but goes to school at Gonzaga College High School in Washington, DC. He currently holds an offer from Virginia but several other schools are recruiting him. Coach Loeffler, the offensive coordinator from Virginia Tech, is coming to watch him throw next week so the Hokies may soon send out an offer as well.
Coach Mallory was at Gonzaga to see Johns along with three of his teammates from the 2015 class, OL Richie Petitbon, WR Jabari Greenwood, and DB Marcus Lewis. Recruiting Gonzaga seems to be a good idea and a great start to a potential pipeline in the talent-rich DMV area.
Whenever the coaches start mentioning the plan to see a quarterback throw in person the possibility of an offer becomes a very real possibility. I'll continue to be in touch with Johns to see if and when that session is supposed to take place.
