A local product is coming closer to home.

Former St. Augustine Prep Hermits star Austin Johnson has signed with the New York Giants. The defensive tackle played his first four seasons with the Tennessee Titans after a great career at Penn State.

The run stuffing tackle had 23 tackles for Tennessee last year.

During his time in Richland, he was a two-time team captain and named all-state, All-Cape-Atlantic League and All-South Jersey during his senior season.

He was also a member of coach Paul Rodio's basketball teams during his time at St. Augustine.
