Central Bucks South QB Matt Johns draws D-1 interest
Matt Johns is coming off what may be the quietest 1,500+-yard passing season in the state last season, but he’s not sneaking past the radars of some Division-1 football programs.
Johns, a 6’5, 200-pound senior-to-be for the Warrington-based Titans, has received interest, but no verbal scholarship offers, from a quintet of Division-1 football programs, according to national recruiting service Rivals.com. Interested parties include Boston College, Penn State, Pitt, Syracuse and Virginia.
Johns may have flown under the radar because the Titans finished 4-6 overall a season ago. But he served as one of the critical offensive weapons for the blue and white, connecting on 114-of-214 passes (53.3 percent) for 1,701 yards and 16 touchdowns against 10 interceptions. He threw for at least 100 yards in each of the Titans’ 10 games, throwing for 200+ yards four times and finishing five games with at least a pair of scoring passes. #5 also added 279 rushing yards and five touchdowns on 62 carries, averaging 4.5 yards per rush attempt.
For his career, Johns has thrown for 2,486 yards and 23 touchdowns, completing 164-of-328 passes (50 percent). He has an outside chance of reaching 4,000 passing yards in his career.
