Newport News (Va.) Heritage running back Michael Johnson is toying with playing another position.
"I might not mind changing to wide receiver," said the 5-foot-10, 180-pounder. "A few schools are recruiting me as an athlete and wide receiver is one of the positions they're looking at. I'm not really sure, I just want to get on the field."
Johnson will still visit Tennessee on Jan. 11 and round out his visits on Jan. 18 at Virginia. He's already been to Michigan State and Miami.
"Miami and Virginia are my favorites," he said. "I'd say Miami still leads. I love the fact that they win all their games. I can't deal with losing and I'm still not sure how quickly Virginia will turn things around."
However, as soon as Johnson finishes talking about Miami, he comes back to UVA.
"At Virginia I could certainly see the field alot quicker and make more of an impact," he said. "I want to be involved in ever play and win every game. Is that too much to ask?"
Miami is one of the teams recruiting Johnson as an athlete while UVA wants him as a running back.
