Cleveland High senior Sterling Johnson is one of the most highly touted defensive linemen in the class of 2015.
He has committed to Clemson so his fall will be a little less hectic than other top college prospects who have yet to announce their college choices.
Johnson talked with Garner-Cleveland sports editor D. Clay Best about the prospects of the Rams this season and his own game.
Last year, we would get on each other arguing after we gave up a big play. In our first scrimmage this year, we talked about things on the sideline and what impressed me is that we didn’t let any play work more than once.
And I think that will help me be more versatile because the coaches have tried to use me in a little different way on the defensive line so far.
You have to be able to bounce back if you have a bad play, a bad quarter, a bad half and get all the more out of your ability later in a game. …
I just remember Cam Newton talking about having the whole stadium (at Alabama in 2012) focused on him, and the energy he got from that, and how he used it on the field to lead his team and perform at the absolute highest level.
