St. John hoping to wrap things up soon

St. John hoping to wrap things up soon

One of the most popular JUCO offensive line recruits this fall has been Trinity Valley OT Josiah St. John (6-7, 305). The talented prospect has already visited three schools, will visit a Big 12 school this weekend and has one last visit to schedule and, at least right now, he's choosing between two Pac 12 schools...

"My offers right now are from Arizona State, Arkansas, Baylor, Fresno State, Kansas, Mississippi, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Oregon State, San Diego State, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Washington, Washington State, West Virginia, Western Kentucky and Western Michigan," St. John told JCFootball.com. "I visited Baylor and Texas Tech during the summer and I was at the Oklahoma - Notre Dame game back in October.

"I'm visiting Kansas this weekend and then I have to make a decision between either Arizona State or Washington for my last visit.

"I had planned all along to finish up my visits with ASU, but Washington came in and made a strong push on me and they showed me how important I am to them and really gave me a great idea of what their school and their program are all about. Honestly, it was one of the most original things a coach has said to me which really got me thinking about visiting them.

"I want to visit both of them, but I only have one official left so, I need to make a decision on which one I will see and I will probably do that next week."

St. John hails from Toronto, Canada, so out of high school he wasn't heavily recruited.

"I didn't even take my SATs because I knew I was going to have to go to a JC program and show what I could do," St. John said. "I chose to play at Fresno City last year and I had a great time there, but I couldn't afford it anymore, so I decided to come out here to Texas where I could get some scholarship money (California JUCO programs don't offer scholarships for football) and still play for a good program with a good record of getting guys moved on to other schools."

St. John started at left tackle for the Cardinals this year and felt like he did well, although his team struggled to a 3-6 record.

"One thing that coaches like about me is that I move my feet pretty well and I get a good punch off the ball," St. John said. "I worked a lot on my strength and my technique and I feel like I have come a long way since high school."

St. John is on pace to graduate in May and he will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
