Decision Soon On Johnsons Trips

Considered the best player left in the 2003 class, Alexander Johnson, a multi-skilled forward from Bridgton Academy in Maine, is likely to line up some visits sometime this week, according to Bridgton head coach Whit Lesure. "I have spoken to him and he is expected to be back from break this week," Lesure said. "Right now it looks like he may visit Florida, Indiana, Kentucky, and Mississippi State."
Previously, Lesure thought that Georgia was going to be a major player in the recruiting process of Johnson. But with the scandal that has hit Athens, Lesure thinks differently now. "We don't know what is going to happen there," Lesure said. "I have played phone tag with James Holland (Georgia assistant) who I have a great deal of respect for. We don't know who the head coach will be. So I think until that happens I can't really comment on where Georgia fits into this."
Johnson, who has the ability to hit a three-pointer and thump you with a dunk, is also considering Cincinnati and Connecticut. "I think sometime late this week or next week he should have some idea on where he will visit," Lesure said. "But remember the tournaments are going on so it's hard to schedule any visits now."
*A source tells RivalsHoops.com that the SEC schools have been sent a letter telling the programs not to recruit Johnson. The reason being is fear that a possible violation was committed in Johnson's recruiting process related to the Georgia case.
