Four-star Tyrone (Ga.) Sandy Creek wide receiver Calvin Johnson says the phone at his house has been ringing off the hook this past week, but he's limited the time he's spent on recruiting calls.
"I've had a ton of calls, but I haven't answered all of them," he said. "I did get to talk to Georgia, Georgia Tech and North Carolina. They didn't really tell me anything new. I already had offers from all three of them, but they were letting me know how important I was to them. And they just asked how school was going and how our team was doing."
Johnson (6-4, 200, 4.44) is a member of the Rivals100 Team and the No. 6 rated wideout in the nation coming off a junior season which saw him catch 34 passes for 780 yards and 10 touchdowns. In his season opener Friday, he caught four passes for approximately 90 yards and scored a touchdown.
In between school, games and calls, he's also managed to squeeze in a pair of unofficial visits.
"I went to Georgia's game at Clemson last week, and I was at Tech yesterday," Johnson said. "Tech really showed me something (in a shocking 17-3 win over Auburn). That was a great game. I had a good time there."
Johnson said the home state Bulldogs and Yellow Jackets remain his two co-leaders, but there could be a darkhorse emerging in the third spot.
"North Carolina has recruited me harder than anyone lately," he said. "I'm open to them as well. I hope to make a visit there if I can."
He also has offers from Miami, Florida State, Clemson and Auburn among a host of other major programs.
Academically, Johnson maintains a 3.5 GPA and has scored a 1000 on the SAT.
