LSU’s quarterback board has continually be re-shaped this spring, and as a result, a new offer has been dished out.
The Tigers extended an offer to 2019 4-star California dual-threat quarterback prospect Michael Johnson Jr. Johnson is the nation’s No. 1 dual-treat passer in the Class of 2019, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
Johnson originally hails from Eugene, Ore.
The offer came from Tigers offensive coordinator Matt Canada and West Coast area recruiter and running backs coach Tommie Robinson.
The 6-foot-3, 185-pound quarterback prospect out of The King’s Academy High School in Sunnyvale, Calif., already boasts an impressive offer sheet. Ohio State, Oregon, Florida State, Southern Cal and Michigan have already dished out offers to the fast-rising 2019 prospect.
In nine games during his sophomore campaign, Johnson completed 139-of-223 (62 percent) of his passes for 2,099 yards, in addition to 23 touchdowns compared to 7 interceptions. He finished the season with a 114.5 quarterback rating.
LSU does not hold a commitment in either its 2018 or 2019 recruiting class. The team is two weeks away from learning where priority 2018 4-star target Justin Rogers will commit, with TCU, LSU and North Carolina as the favorites. Only 4-star Houston passer Grant Gunnell and 4-star Alabama quarterback Bo Nix hold offers from LSU in the 2019 class.
