ESPN.com released its college football preseason All-American team and a current Pitt offensive lineman made his way onto the list - guard Dorian Johnson.
Big things are expected of Johnson and the selection is just another preseason honor for the former five-star recruit.
Last month, he was named to the Preseason All-ACC Team along with defensive lineman Ejuan Price. Before that, he was named to the preseason watchlist for the Outland Trophy along with senior Adam Bisnowaty. And this spring, NFL.com touted him as one of the top 100 players in college football.
Pitt has several open spots on its team on both sides of the ball and the offensive line has some question marks in terms of who won’t start. But the left side with Johnson and Bisnowaty is rock solid and it’s great to see Johnson pick up some more early recognition heading into the year.
