Baylor Bears Get Commitment From D-Lineman
At Cuero, Johnson played three different positions; offensive guard, defensive end, and tight end. BearsIllustrated.com caught up with Cuero athletic director and coach Mark Reeve to get his take on Johnson.
"He is a kid that started for us for 3 1/2 years. In our situation, kids have to play both ways. He played guard, tight end, and defensive end. He is a good player, he is hard working, and he is a great discuss thrower."
Coach Reeve explains that Johnson will likely play defensive tackle for the Baylor Bears, but provides that Johnson will be a good fit for any position the Baylor coaches put him at.
"He has such great confidence. He is a good character kid, and he is not the kind of kid that is going to get into trouble off the field."
Kaeron Johnson took the time to discuss his commitment to Baylor, and talked about what set Baylor apart from the other schools that showed interest in him.
"The campus, the atmosphere, it just all felt right," said Johnson.
"Coach Achuff told me that he needed guys that could come in and play right away. I was looking at location, the position I would be playing, and the coaches."
Johnson held offers from Missouri, Colorado State, Texas State and Rice, and had originally committed to Texas State in October. Now, however, he plans on suiting up for the green and gold.
"I committed to Baylor. It is 100%."
