Justin Johnson loved his weekend visit to Duke and the Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco wide receiver is considering a commitment but it might be a few weeks before a decision is finalized.
Johnson, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound prospect, said the Duke coaching staff told him to hold off for a little while as they find more space in their recruiting class for another wide receiver.
The Blue Devils already have Highlands Ranch (Colo.) Valor Christian's Max McCaffrey and Ponte Vedra Beach (Fla.) Jacksonville Episcopal's Erich Schneider committed at that position.

"The coaching staff all loves me," Johnson said. "The thing is there was one spot open for receivers and a kid committed but I wanted to get out to the school first before I committed. They told me to give them a month and try to find space for me and then they'll take my commitment.
"I'm going to keep in contact with the coaches and they'll let me know when a spot opens up and I'll probably jump on it right there."
Everything went well for Johnson during his Duke visit. He hit it off with the coaching staff, loved the campus and the facilities and the academics were also one of the biggest selling points.
Johnson, who finished with 27 receptions for 365 yards and one touchdown in his junior season, has also been hearing from Stanford, Colorado, Arizona State, Boise State, Utah, San Diego State and San Jose State.
Stanford has always been one of Johnson's favorite but he said once the Duke coaching staff says there is room then he plans to commit to the Blue Devils.
"It went great," Johnson said of the visit. "I loved the school. I didn't think their facilities were as good as they are.
"I was impressed with how the coaches like me. I was impressed with the new indoor facility. I just love the program and the way they're going to assist me when I first get there with tutoring and getting the classes I need."
