Atlantic High’s signing ceremony began late, but it was for a good reason.

Shelton Johnson was still trying to decide between Michigan and Florida State, so Eagles coach Tavarius Jackson pulled the four-star recruit into a room.

“It was something we sat down and talked about,” Jackson said. “That’s why it took us so long to come in. He was a nervous wreck.”

After their discussion, Jackson and Johnson walked into Atlantic High’s media center 20 minutes late Wednesday. But the 6-foot-5 Eagles defensive end had made up his mind, choosing Michigan in front a crowd full of teammates, coaches, family and media. [More]
