Recruiting: Receiver Wows At Kilgore Camp
Johnson is one of the top wide receiver prospects in Texas and follows up a year where another top wide receiver came out of East Texas in Lufkin's Dez Bryant. Johnson as a junior earned all kinds of honors including All-State honorable mention with 38 receptions for 1,030 yards and 13 touchdowns. Johnson has 4.6 speed or better and also has a 32.6-inch vertical jump. His ball skills are very strong.
"This (camp) really helps a lot in showing what you need to work on and where you are compared to other top players," said Johnson. "Working with the coaching staff at OSU was great because it kind of shows you what they will be like and how they'll work with you if you go there. It helps a lot."
This starts a busy season for Johnson, who said he has a camp at TCU on Thursday, a camp at Texas A&M next week, and he said he also hopes to go to a camp at Michigan.
"Right now in recruiting you can just say all of the Big 12 schools except Texas and Baylor for me," said Johnson. "Yes, Oklahoma State is definitely a school that I am considering. Then there is Michigan and do you have Arizona State? I am also looking at Arizona State."
And what is Johnson's time frame with his recruiting? "I think I will head into the season," he said. "I'm thinking I will take my visits and I am looking forward to going to some games at schools this upcoming season, too."
Johnson said he did like working with OSU wide receiver coach Gunter Brewer and that he thought the camp was a real help as far as getting to know the coaches and the way they work.
The Oklahoma State camp caravan moves into Houston Wednesday morning and then has an afternoon session in Belton, Texas.
