Three-star Miami (Fla.) Southridge wide receiver Gilbert Johnson wasted no time committing to Georgia earlier this year, but that didn't stop him from taking part in Florida State's camp this week.
"Everything is still going good," Johnson said. "I'm still a commit to Georgia and I don't think coming to Florida State changes that."
Johnson was forced to miss last week's Dawg Night, one of the biggest recruiting nights of the offseason for the Bulldogs. He said it was tough to make the long trip from Miami all the way to Athens.
"My mom had to work so I couldn't get a ride," he said. "I was bummed I couldn't make it. I wanted to go real bad so I could be up there with the other recruits and coaches but I couldn't."
Among the schools still chasing the committed Johnson are the Seminoles, along with Louisville, Tennessee and Cincinnati. Johnson will also take a visit to Auburn on Saturday as part of a function with his team.
Johnson said he doesn't have a ton of interest in visiting other schools while committed, but decided to come to Tallahassee out of respect for the 'Noles coaching staff.
"I came out here last year and I know a lot about the school and the coaches here," he said. "They still wanted me to come even though I'm committed and that's why I came up here."
