With continued recruiting attention growing, Waco, Texas safety Victor Johnson is focused on his academics.
Coach Johnny Tusa says that the 6-foot, 170-pound, defensive back prospect has been hitting the books. Early scholarship offers came from Baylor, Oklahoma State, and Texas Tech but now Miami has made their presence known. Other schools such as Southern Cal and Florida continue to gauge his interest in them.
However, coach Tusa says that he's focusing on what's important right now.
"Certainly, he's aware that people have an interest in him, but to his credit, he's more focused on getting better and doing what he can do to be academically ready-to-go."
Tusa says that the Miami scholarship offer is the most recent one that he knows is for sure on the table in writing.
"I know they've offered because I have that on my desk," Tusa said. "He has had a chance to talk with them. Most other people, like Florida, have indicated that they're interested. I talked to Chuck Heater from Florida and he said they're very interested in him."
Even with the offer count increasing, Tusa says that Johnson isn't favoring any schools at this point. One thing that's not in question is his abilities as a Division I safety.
"I don't think there is any question," Johnson's coach said. "I think he's a strong safety (at the next level) or possibly a free safety. He has a great desire to make plays. That desire alone puts him in the right place at the right time."
