Noel Johnson, the 53rd ranked player in the country in the Class of 2009 by recruiting service Rivals.com, is concluding a two-day visit with the Charlotte 49ers on Tuesday.
Johnson, a 6-foot-7, 180-wing player from Fayetteville, Ga., is also the 11th ranked small forward in the country and a four-star recruit. He originally signed with Southern Cal but was recently granted a release from his letter of intent.
Johnson is considering several schools, including Georgia Tech, Louisiana State and UNLV, although Charlotte is considered the front runner, sources said.
It is unclear how Johnson would be able to receive a scholarship. As of Tuesday, all of the 49ers' scholarships are taken for the 2009-10 season.
Rivals.com describes Johnson as a wing guard with good size and an excellent jumper.
