I just heard from someone in the field house that Jake Johnson has been added to the SB.
Congrats to Jake and well deserved.
Awesome for USA!
Well deserved, definitely. It would have been an injustice otherwise.
Awesome news.. Pullin' out the Jag gear for the game saturday now.
Progress is being made. The school needs to spend some money and make a big deal out of this.
Sweet. he needs to hit the practice field today, that is where he will make the biggest impressions.
Congrats to you guys and from someone who hasn't followed USA whats he project to at the next level?

I cannot stress enough how big this is to the program. We're having the biggest recruiting weekend in our short history this weekend and pointing to one of our own on the field is going to have impact.
He's a pretty effective run stopper in the middle. I think he will have to start out as a special teamer but I really think he could end up being a Patrick Willis type tackling machine.
Think maybe 4-5th rd pick in the draft?
I personally have no idea. I am a complete noob when it comes to looking at what NFL scouters look for in prospects.
That would be great but I don't care if he's the last guy drafted, just as long as they call his name from the podium!
PS - Coach Jones tweeted it so it's definately for real.
Well... I guess I can go now!
Yup, I got confirmation also. Congrats Jake Johnson!
Class of '14. Go Jags! South in your Mouth!
Guess the scouts saw something last week.Tell everyone you can.Man you don't know how happy i'am for the young man and South Alabama.Someone else mentioned the recruits at the game that will be awesome.Gotta go to SB facebook and thank them.To all the TRUE Jag fans that kept the faith and thought he should get in good job.

Awesome News...I am awake now...will we see something on AL.Com
This is wonderful news and here's wishing Jake all the best and he can get noticed and drafted that upcoming event. It's great to be a USA Jaguar!
Think former K-State LB Mark Simoneau.
That is awesome news!! I'll have to go buy my ticket now. It's shaping up to be a nice weekend for a big recruiting class....Mardi Gras kicks off, great weather and Senior Bowl with a Jaguar out on the field!! Go Jags!!

Maybe next week. Maybe.
I was hoping something before the game was played...but hey I know etc....etc...
Outstanding!! Well deserved for a great player and person!! Go get em' #42!!!
Great news and it could work out in his favor not getting the invite earlier.
Getting to play in both games will give more film for the scouts to check out.
USA Class of 99
I'm sure Tommy Hicks will have something.I think he does a pretty good job covering South.Remember when he had the live chat on al.com.The TV stations should do a story about Jake and his journey from VT to South and hopefully to the NFL.Maybe when his playing days are over he could be on the staff @ South.I hope Lee will have him on one morning.Randy Kennedy actually predicted JJ would be the first Jag ever drafted.
Ahem. And boom.
Today I’ll take any kind of passion. Just care! Complain, moan, groan, or call for somebody’s head. CARE !! - OJ
Big question: how many of our local tv affiliates will even mention this either at 6 or 10 on their reports tonight?
IT'S OUR TIME! GO JAGS!!
Good Question...post the answer...
