Speedy Florida WR talks recruiting

Miami Booker T. Washington wide receiver Davon Johnson is one of the fastest prospects at his position in South Florida for the Class of 2008. Currently, the 5-foot-11, 175-pounder holds four scholarship offers and is getting plenty of interest from a number of other major programs.
"I have offers from Miami (Fla.), Rutgers and Ole Miss," he said. "UCF also has offered and I think Minnesota is fixing to offer."
While Johnson isn't ready to name a leader, he is highly interested in the hometown Canes.
"I don't have a leader right now," he said. "I will have one after spring practice, I think. (Miami) is one of the top programs recruiting me right now."
Rutgers also has made an impression on Johnson, who ran a confirmed 4.48-second 40-yard dash and had a 35-inch vertical leap at the Miami NIKE Combine in February and was one of the top wide receivers at the Miami NIKE Camp on April 1.
"I really liked their season last year," Johnson said. "They also have a receiver from down here in Miami, Tim Brown, and I like how that situation seems."
Johnson also has interest in the Rebels, Gophers and Golden Knights.
"I have interest in all of the schools that have offered me," he said.
There are a couple of schools out there that have yet to offer Johnson that he says he would be interested in receiving attention from.
"Florida, Ohio State, South Carolina and Tennessee are all schools I have interest in," he said.
Johnson says he expects several college recruiters to stop by his school and check on him and the other prospects at Booker T. Washington during the next few weeks. Right now, he is busy preparing for the state track meet.
Johnson will compete in the 400, 200 and the 4x400 at the meet.
