Scout.com has confirmed that Scottsdale (Az.) Saguaro RB/DB Kamron Johnson has received a new offer, his fifth overall.
Johnson says, "Wisconsin just offered me."
He continues, "Coach Mohns (Saguaro head coach) said he had talked to Coach Busch about me the other day and he wanted to see my most explosive plays. So we sat and redid my highlight film and put all of my explosive plays first and sent it to Coach Busch a few days ago."
"Then today after workouts Coach Mohns called me and said he talked to Coach Busch and they offered me a scholarship as a defensive player. I am so excited. I was talking to my parents about it and how an offer it is. I think I am going to try and get out there with Byron Murphy (2016 CB) and take an unofficial visit."
He finishes, "I haven't got a chance to speak to any Wisconsin coaches though because it is a dead period but Coach Busch is supposed to get in touch with me when he can and come out and see me in the Fall. I am very excited to get to know more about the program."
Johnson (5-11 200) was his section's player of the year as a junior. He rushed for 1,060 yards and 13 TDs, caught 37 passes for 588 yards and 5 TDs and made 38 tackles and 3 INTs on defense.
He recently transferred to Saguaro from Tempe High.
UNLV, Wyoming, , South Dakota State and Montana have also offered.
