Although Pompano Beach (Fla.) Blanche Ely receiver Avery Johnson gave his verbal to LSU -- the school at which older brother Patrick Peterson was an All-SEC cornerback - way back in September, he stated earlier this year that while still committed he wasn't done with the recruiting process.
Over the weekend, Johnson re-affirmed that feeling.
While competing in the Badger Sports 7 on 7 Elite at the University of South Florida in Tampa, Johnson claimed he was "very open" at the moment. In addition to considering LSU, he said he was giving Auburn, Florida, Miami, North Carolina and Oklahoma a look.
"There have been a lot of schools after me," Johnson said. "That's why I opened it up again.
Which program is giving LSU the biggest push at the moment?
That was an easy question for the 6-foot-2, 180-pound Johnson to answer.
"Miami," he said. "I'm liking Miami now. Oh yeah. Coach [George] McDonald, the wide receiver coach there … he's been recruiting me the hardest."
At last check, Johnson had around 20 offers, he said.
"Penn State [was the most recent to offer]," Johnson said. "That was about a month ago. The defensive coordinator came to my school."
At this time, Johnson said he has no plans to de-commit from LSU, but added that "anything can happen." He praised the Tigers coaching staff for its handling of his recruitment.
"They've been cool," Johnson said. "They told me to look around and see what's out there. But they really want me to be a Tiger."
Next on the agenda for Johnson is a trip this weekend to either Florida or Florida State. As far as making a final decision goes, he said he will announce his intentions at next year's Under Armour All-America Game.
