Four Lions make commitments official on

National Signing Day

SUWANEE — Four Peachtree Ridge football standouts signed to play the game at the next level Wednesday on National Signing Day in the performing arts center at Peachtree Ridge High School.
Peyton Bowens made his commitment official when he signed to Hutchinson Community College, Wilson Cato signed with Army-West Point, Payne Durham signed with Purdue and Jaylen Johnson will be a preferred walk-on at Georgia. 
 
A split decision for Johnson.
 
 

 
Johnson was committed to West Georgia until four days before signing day. An official visit to Georgia swayed Johnson toward Athens. He notified coaches at West Georgia the next day, and hopes to be a part of what he thinks is a special crop of recruits coming to Athens in 2018.  “The coaches were cool about it, they understood where I came from,” Johnson said. “(Georgia) took me by storm. I saw it as an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.”
Johnson was the Lions' leading receiver last season, averaging 18.5 yards per reception. 

Durham choses Purdue, football over lacrosse  Durham hadn’t played high school football until his senior year at Peachtree Ridge. He said he started wearing football pads in kindergarten, but Durham decided to focus on putting his lacrosse pads to use once he hit high school. Durham started playing lacrosse as a seventh grader, and was starting to receive offers to continue his career at the collegiate level.

 
Then, head coach Reggie Stancil personally recruited Durham to come back to football for his senior season, and that’s when he rediscovered why he loved to play in the first place.  “(I like) the excitement when I play (football),” Durham said. “Lacrosse is great, and I love it, but football is a different energy.”  The tipping point for Durham was head coach Jeff Brohm, who turned around a 3-9 Boilermaker program into a 7-6 team in his first season.
Durham was a second team all-county and all-region tight end for Peachtree Ridge in his senior season.
