Penn State is trending on the 247Sports Crystal Ball for Eugene (Ore.) Sheldon quarterback Michael Johnson Jr., who is set to announce his college choice on August 1. 247Sports Director of Recruiting Steve Wiltfong first reported the upcoming decision on Tuesday.

The Nittany Lions got Johnson on campus for an official visit in early June and have been working hard to add him as the second quarterback in their Class of 2019.

“It’s Coach (James) Franklin and everything he’s about and his coaching style,” he told 247Sports on Tuesday. “I think he’s a real unique coach and he has that program going in a good direction.”

Running backs coach Ja'Juan Seider, offensive coordinator Ricky Rahne and tight ends coach Tyler Bowen have led the charge for the Nittany Lions outside of Franklin. Though the Nittany Lions offered in September, it has been Seider that has struck up the best relationship with the four-star prospect.

“I have a really good relationship with Coach (JaJuan) Seider,” he said. “Coach Seider and I have been close for awhile. I trust everything he says.”

Johnson is the No. 219 overall prospect and the No. 5 dual-threat quarterback nationally according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. The Under Armour All-American is a three-star prospect according to 247Sports and the nation’s No. 13 dual-threat quarterback.

Arizona State, LSU, Miami, NC State, Nebraska, Oregon and Penn State were among the seven schools that made his list when he cut it down in May. He then added Florida State to the mix and took an official visit to Tallahassee in June. Miami and N.C. State also got official visits last month. Oregon and Miami are the other schools that have picked up predictions on the 247Sports Crystal Ball.

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound prospect also reported offers from Alabama, Baylor, Cal, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Mississippi State, North Carolina, Ohio State, Tennessee, TCU, Texas Tech and others.

As a junior in 2017, Johnson completed 83 of 133 passes for 1,218 yards and 21 touchdowns to just five interceptions. In three years as a starter he has completed 331 of 535 passes for 5,565 yards and 69 touchdowns to 15 interceptions. He has also run for 1,878 yards and scored 28 touchdowns on the ground over the last three seasons.
