Putting a fence around New Jersey is Rutgers' first order of business as they prepare for their move to the Big Ten. One player they hope to keep in-state is 2015 wide receiver Juwan Johnson.
The move to the Big Ten has created a lot of excitement around the Knights' program and prospects like Juwan Johnson are intrigued by the move.
Johnson performed well at the Rivals Camp Series presented by Under Armour in New Jersey. In spite of a slow start he was able to pick it up and finish strong. That should only help him garner more attention to go with the momentum he had already created for himself.
Coaches from Michigan, Penn State, North Carolina and Temple are among those that have visited Glassboro (N.J.) to see the 6-foot-4, 196-pound receiver this spring.
Rutgers is the only school that has offered so far.
"They offered about a month ago and I've talked to them and visited twice. I went for a spring practice and the spring game. I'm comfortable with them. I'm familiar with it. I don't have any favorites yet but I like their coaching staff. I'm real comfortable with them. They're down to earth."
There is a long way to go for Johnson and he has got at least one more visit in mind, hopefully for later this spring or the summer.
"I'm really looking forward to West Virginia," he said. "Just their style of play and how they respect their players."
