SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Of KamRon Johnson's six scholarship offers, three come from FBS schools and one comes from a power conference member. Most are to play running back and at least one is for some linebacker-safety hybrid spot. Johnson doesn't much mind the different opportunities, though.
In his mind, having options is a perk.
"Most of it is at running back. I think I have two defensive offers. Wait, maybe only one defensive offer. The defensive offer is from Wyoming. The other is actually from Wisconsin
A senior at Scottsdale (Ariz.) Saguaro High School, Johnson plays running back and linebacker on Friday nights. But of the 5-foot-11 prospect decides to play defense in college, his future could very well be at safety.
That's a decision he'll tackle down the road, though. For now, he doesn't have a preference when it comes to position.
"I don't really prefer one to the other at all," Johnson said. "It's just wherever I'm going to fit in best at. It will all play out on my visits. If I feel like I fit a program best in one area, I'll go there."
The visits Johnson speaks of are in the early stages of being set. Of course he's still open to late-arriving scholarship offers. For the time being, though, he's working with the offers on the table in front of him.
"Right now, my parents are talking about going to UNLV and Wyoming," Johnson said. "Those are two major ones. I might take a visit to Wisconsin, too. I've been getting a lot of interest from Hawaii, so I might visit there."
In the first game of his senior season, Johnson gained 64 yards on 12 carries. He also scored three touchdowns and recorded nine tackles from the linebacker spot.
