Spanish Fort senior linebacker Thomas Johnston has had quite a couple of weeks, recording at least 17 tackles in each of the Toros’ last two victories. That leaves him only 19 tackles away from becoming the state’s all-time leader in tackles.
Last weekend, Johnston took an official visit to Arkansas to take in the Razorbacks’ 34-30 thrilling win over Ole Miss. He was accompanied by his parents and teammate Justin Thomas.
Johnston also has visits scheduled for Michigan State, Iowa and LSU.
The 6-foot-2, 220-pound tackling machine has also considered joining his brother Tyler at UAB.
Regardless of where he ends up, it won’t be a surprise to see Johnston become the heart and soul of the defense, just as he is at Spanish Fort.
