Dorian Johnson: Highlights, Scouting Report on the 4-Star Recruit

Full Ride@BR_FullRideB/R VideoDecember 27, 2012

Dorian Johnson, a 6’5”, 268-pound offensive tackle from Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania, played his high school football just outside of Pittsburgh at Belle Vernon High School. It looks like he'll be staying nearby, too, as he committed to Pitt in November.

His senior year didn’t see his team do very well, as the Leopards went 4-6. 247Sports is high on Johnson, though, grading him a 5-star recruit and calling him the second-best offensive tackle and seventh-best overall recruit in the nation. 247's composite rankings slate him just shy of 5-star status, but it's clear to see he will be an asset either way.

Watch to see which NFL player Johnson reminds us of.
