I have read many many articles on him ranging from him saying he will be enrolling early at Miami to him decommitting. Does anyone really know what is going on with him? He has been a Miami commit for so long and now I dont know. In the latest article I read about it, his Dad says he is still committed but is open and will be deciding very soon, and that decision will be a surprise to everyone.

That doesn't sound good for Miami. What does everyone else think about this and where will he end up ultimately.

He is playing the recruiting game to its fullest. He leads every team to believe they all have a very good shot at landing him, but ultimately he has one team decided already and is only waiting till signing day to announce it to the world.

I think he's a Cane too. If we can't get him I hope we can somehow land TJ Bryant.

It's a pretty funny situation. Johnson says he's "100% Cane", yet a simple search on one of the recruiting sites yields nothing but speculation on how he's going to Georgia, LSU, USC, Florida etc with almost no mention of Miami. They're trying as hard as they possibly can to stir the pot and make it seem like he's de-committing, but anyone in the know will agree that he's sticking with Miami.

Hes going to be a monster wherever he goes.

If it isn't LSU, I just hope its out of the SEC. Miami seems like a lock for him right now, but I guess things could change.

I don't think he's going to SC, the interest has sort of cooled off it seems.

I hope he doesn't end up a Gator.

All I know is he's done a complete 180 and Miami seems to be out of the picture. I hope it's not the Gators because I will hear it from their fans for weeks but I think that's his lean right now. I'd much rather see him at USC or LSU and I from what I've read, he does seem to have a genuine interest in USC.

I've seen that PJ has some interest in SC, but his dads interest is another story and I don't know how much say his pops has.

His Dad might be his biggest influence and his dad is the one pushing him away from Miami. I could be wrong but I was always under the impression that his dad was the one that wanted him to go away for school. Maybe his dad is pulling for UF though and not USC like I thought.

If his dad wanted him to be at Miami he would've been a hard verbal already. That's the sad truth, and PJ will struggle to make his own success if he lets his parents run the show.

His success will have nothing to do with what school his father wants him to go to. He's a stud and will be a stud where ever he goes.

So you're gonna tell me that it's okay for his parents to boss around his football career? That shows a lack of maturity in PJ and that can't be anything but a negative quality. Remember Archie Manning pushing Eli not to sign with SD, that turned out pretty well for him.

His family should play a big part in his decision, yes. It's not like PJ isn't interested in the school his father wants him to go to. If his father was pushing him towards Miami we wouldn't be having this conversation.

The Eli analogy is ********, because Archie wanted him in a big market.

He's 18, correct? He should be making his own decisions, with the help of others. He shouldn't be making decisions by others.

So what if Archie wanted him in a big market? It doesn't look on an NFL prospect when his dad is telling him where to play. If Eli would've stuck with San Diego he would've had more playoff success and better coaching.

Mike Farrell of Rivals.com spoke to Patrick, and he has eliminated Miami. He will not be a Cane. He's down to Florida, FSU, and LSU. My guess is Florida.

Rich Jr
12-30-2007, 01:09 PM
I think LSU gets him.

LSU is listed as High while Florida and FSU are listed at Medium.

We also just offered Alonzo Lawrence, the #2 corner and he's expected to commit soon.

BigJohn98
12-30-2007, 01:18 PM
LSU being listed as high doesn't mean a thing. Marvin Austin was a silent to FSU for as long as I could remember, and he chose UNC. Patrick could have a surprise in store. He was roommates with Nigel Bradham when they went to New York.

If that happened all of Miami would welcome him back with open arms. I clearly think LSU is out since they are his favorite right now.

If I had to bet it would be Florida State. Have heard from some people that Bradham is in his ear hardcore.

who cares any more. This isn't the 1st time he de committed from Miami. Hell it isn't even the 2nd time he said he decommited from Miami.

The kids got all world talent but TO like attitude. Frankly, I'm sick of it. I wanted him in this class real bad but his games and actions have gotten to the point where I just don't care anymore.

Give me Brandon Harris over him any day. Harris is about as close talent wise as you can get and what little you lose in talent you make up for with his great attitude and team 1st spirit.

Miami has always been a team 1st program that prides itself on the relationships of it's player the way the BTW and MNW kids have come together this recruiting season. PJ just never bought into that and instead wanted to be babied and pampered by the coaches.

I've been saying for about a month I didn't expect him in Miami nor do I want him anymore. More trouble then it's worth. Good thing is, Randy Shannon has shown that he will not hesitate to pull offers from kids like this as he did it with McCray already. I'm sure Randy won't welcome PJ back after all this if he feels Brandon Harris is in the fold.

Seems like hes an LSU lean, but you never know. He seems to play games with people during interviews, so I wouldn't be shocked to see him go to Florida.

I'd love it if he came to LSU..got a hell of a lot of talent, but I'm not getting my hopes up just yet.

One of the top high school football players in the country is calling the Florida coaching staff "cowards" after his ACT score was questioned, apparently by Florida.

The player is named Patrick Johnson, and he's a cornerback from Blanche Ely High School in Pompano Beach, Florida. Scout.com calls him the best cornerback in the country. He has committed to LSU and planned to enroll early.

But he may not be able to do that, as the 22 he scored on his ACT after twice scoring a 16 is being questioned. ACT officials are examining the score, as an improvement of that magnitude is rare. Johnson blames Florida for questioning the score.

"Florida made an issue about the ACT score," Johnson said, per the Times-Picayune. "They're cowards. They had to go behind my back. But that's OK. We play them this year."

Of course, Florida only made an issue of the ACT score because Johnson spurned the Gators for the Tigers. That doesn't necessarily mean Florida isn't correct here, though. The fact is, part of being a highly sought recruit is having people scrutinize your ACT score.

And the fact is, Johnson is correct: Assuming he's academically eligible in the fall, he'll get his shot at Florida then.

I bet they wouldn't have had a problem with his ACT scores if he picked Florida. What a bunch of cry babies.

If you took it as negative then you read way too much into it. It was seriously a 2 line post where i told him that the topic was being discussed somewhere else. That was it. Your telling me to cut the guy some slack and all I was doing was helping the guy out and letting him know where this was being talked about. Can't even do a good deed on these damn boards without someone getting on your case. Whatever else you seemed to infer from that is your problem and I didn't see the need to get on my case about it. But w/e, I'm not one to fight. Move on.

C.U.M is the worst HC in College football. The lowest of lows. The guy is complete slime. But he's gotten results so far so unfortunately he's not going anywhere. I can't wait to people catch onto his act and the UF football program goes downhill. Watch, it will happen sooner or later.

4 losses isn't exactly results. I was talking more about the NC. He's got at least 3 more years left simply because of the NC and for bringing Harvin and Tebow into the program. He brings in top recruiting classes all the time but half of them get kicked off the team or transfer before ever seeing the field. Tough to keep the team competetive with that going on. Not to mention, future recruits will see that and start going elsewhere.

And all of that doesn't even begin to get into the arrest problem UF has had since he's been there or the NCAA just now opening an investigation into Urban recruiting Carl Moore's gf to UF as a way to help him get UF. Urban is said to pull lots of strings to get his potential recruits gf into school as a way of influencing them.

He's fine for now but he could and hopefully will go downhill in a hurry.

Well C.U.M struck again. PJ not going to enroll until June, due to the flagged test score(cough C.U.M). PJ missed the deadline to send in his transcript because of the late official release of his test score.
