Each week, we want to give athletes who are very active and persistent on twitter to get recruited some recognition. These are the guys that are actively trying to get recruited, and are doing their part to get a shot at the next level. Here are the offensive and defensive spotlights of the week:
KJ Johnson-Gibson KJ Johnson-Gibson 6'0" | WR Clackamas | 2022 State OR , ATH, 6’0″ 175lbs, Clackmas HS (C/O ’22)
Johnson-Gibson is an excellent all-around athlete and a solid asset to Clackmas on both sides of the ball. He shows excellent twitch and quickness and it is very difficult to run man coverage against him. He often generates a clean release with his feet and shiftiness, and gets into his route without hesitation. Fluid and precise route runner that is explosive at the top of his routes. He holds excellent route integrity and does a great job getting back on his original stem. He stretches the field well vertically and has a good football IQ as he knows when to keep his route vertical or bend to find a soft spot in zone coverage. He has loose hips and solid top end speed for big play ability. He’s a two way starter for Clackmas and a key player on both sides of the ball. He also plays basketball and runs track for Clackmas, so the 3-sport athlete will only continue to build and bring out the best of his athleticism on different platforms. I think he is a definite FCS level talent right now, with the potential to develop more and draw in FBS attention. He holds current interest from Weber State, Eastern Washington, and Maryland.
Thank you @gnduff for inviting me to the @weberstatefb junior day. Had a great time seeing the campus, facilities and the beautiful city of Ogden. @CoachJayHill @21ADyson @BrandonHuffman pic.twitter.com/1fkUpTk8Q1

Dylan Layne Dylan Layne 6'2" | DB Lake Oswego | 2022 State OR , DB, 6’2″ 205lbs, Lake Oswego HS (C/O ’22)
Layne sizes up with a muscular, athletic build with good functional strength. A definite key player on both sides of the ball for Lake Oswego as he also starts at WR. He does a great job at safety in single high, 2-high, and has also shown the athleticism to man up on the slot. He reads the QB’s eyes well and is an instinctual player in the secondary. He displays a solid change of direction to break on the ball well and force numerous PBU’s or initiate immediate contact. Good range overall in both coverage and the run game as he can play sideline to sideline. He shows good play reaction and reacts to the ball very well. High football IQ as you can tell he does his homework in the film room and applies that knowledge to game day. He’s a good tackler overall as he has been effective in run support the past two seasons for Lake Oswego. Layne works very hard in the classroom as he maintains a 4.3 GPA, which has drawn in Ivy League attention. Definite 2022 player to get on your radar.
