Lone Star WR Has Many Options Available

A 6-4 200 wide receiver coming off a season collecting 1,030 yards and 13 touchdowns is bound to get a lot of recruiting attention. Sedrick Johnson is also an accomplished basketball player that could explore that avenue in recruiting. One thing is for sure, Johnson has a plethora of schools contacting him, and he told Devils Digest that he's been enjoying the attention he's getting from ASU.

"Things are good right now with Arizona State," said Sedrick Johnson in regards to the recruiting efforts of the Sun Devils. "I'm hearing a lot from Coach Yarber and I like him a lot. It seems like they have a lot of good people down there, and from what I looked them up online it looks like a nice place to live. I like the sun a lot and I know they have a whole lot of that down there in Arizona (smile). I like the style of offense they run…I'm planning to visit them officially later in the year."

Johnson's frame speaks for itself as far as his ability to be physical against defensive backs, but he's not all brawn as he sports a 32-inch vertical jump. "My leaping ability and aggressiveness are my strong points," he commented regarding his skills. "I run a 4.5 but I want to get faster and my footwork needs to get better too. I also need to work on my route running." He added that Randy Moss is the NFL receiver that he looks up to the most.

The Arp High School (Tex.) standout has attended camps at TCU and Oklahoma State. Aside from those two programs, Florida, LSU, Nebraska and Michigan are some of schools that have tendered offers. When it's time for him to make his decision, Johnson is very clear on what factors will affect his ultimate choice. "Education is very important to me when I choose the school," he stated. "Obviously you want an opportunity to play early and have teammates that make you feel comfortable…like you're a part of a family."

With such a wide array of impressive options, it's only natural that the wide receiver is in no hurry to pledge. He does claim that the maroon and gold are still looking good as a possible destination. "I'm definitely gonna take all my official visits before I make a decision," Johnson commented. "Besides Arizona State, I might visit Texas A&M, Oklahoma State and Nebraska. I don't know yet for sure…"
