Georgia Tech's Paul Johnson visits Woodward prospects

5:29 p.m. Sunday, December 7, 2008

Georgia Tech coaches Paul Johnson and Buzz Preston met with several players at Woodward Academy on Thursday, including senior Brian Holland and juniors Henry Anderson, Delino DeShields and Juwan Thompson. Anderson, who picked up a scholarship offer from Stanford on Wednesday, was impressed with Johnson. "Coach Johnson was a laid back kind of guy with a good sense of humor and was easy to talk to," the 6-foot-6, 237-pound Anderson said. "He was down to earth and fun to talk to. "They were there for about 20 to 25 minutes. They talked about the recruiting process." Anderson is hopeful the Jackets will offer him a scholarship. "If Tech offers, I would definitely think hard about going there," he said. "They're one of the best teams in the country, and they've got elite academics as well." Will the Jackets offer? The coaches who handle the recruiting at Woodward said they might offer all three of us [juniors]," Anderson said. "I know they were talking to Brian Holland about walking on. "If the head coach shows up at your school, you know they're interested."

Stanford offers Woodward Academy junior RB Thompson

4:41 p.m. Sunday, November 23, 2008

Woodward Academy junior running back Juwan Thompson had to take a second look after receiving correspondence in the mail from Stanford on Saturday. "It looked like a regular letter, but then I read it again and said 'oh, it's an offer,'" said Thompson. "When I got an offer from Duke, the letter was laminated and it was sent to my school." The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Thomson is already toying with the idea of visiting Stanford in December. "I tried to call [Stanford] coach [Jim] Harbaugh on Saturday and he returned my call [today]," Thompson said. "He told me about the school and said he's looking forward to me coming down."
