New offers intrigue Johnson

Mossi Johnson committed to UCLA earlier this month but that has not stopped other Pac-12 schools from recruiting him.
The Los Angeles Crenshaw three-star athlete who could play wide receiver or defensive back was offered by Washington State and Utah on Tuesday and he said there is some interest in both programs.
The offers came as a surprise to Johnson, who shined at the B2G Elite Camp this past summer, but he's intrigued because the coaching staffs have been telling him some positive things.
"I actually haven't been talking to them much," Johnson said. "They both kind of came out of nowhere.
"There is a little interest, like mid-interest, for both schools."
Hearing more from the coaches could play a factor for Johnson, who said he would like to visit both Washington State and Utah but nothing has been scheduled yet.
"Washington State said if I go there they said I could start at corner, I have potential to start at cornerback as a freshman," Johnson said. "At Utah they told me I could play on either side of the ball and I would have potential to start there, too.
"I would like to set up visits for both of them but I don't know what dates. I thought about November 10 for Washington State but I have to get it set in stone."
Just because Johnson, a 6-foot-1, 170-pound prospect, picked up two new offers it doesn't mean he's wavering from his UCLA commitment.
A Bruins' coach was at the Los Angeles Crenshaw game last weekend and Johnson said he is curious about the new teams but is sticking with the Bruins for now.
"Everything is fine with them," Johnson said. "They were at my game Friday and they saw me play. They were there. I haven't been out of L.A. so I just want to take some visits."
Rivals.com rates Johnson as the No. 77 prospect in the California state rankings.
