UA getting involved with corner

Defensive back Johnny Johnson is seeing Pac-12 schools recruit him. Read on to see who he is hearing from the most, when he wants to decide, and more.

Johnny Johnson is already one of the hottest commodities on the west coast. The 5-foot-9, 165-pound defensive back from Fresno (Calif.) Central currently holds offers from schools all over the country, including some of the better programs in the Pac-12.

Arizona has been able to creep into the mix for Johnson and the Wildcats have recently been in contact with the highly-touted defensive prospect.

"We have only spoke to each other one time," Johnson said. "(We talked about) the things they are supposed to do this year and everything new that is about to happen at the school."

Johnson is garnering attention from some very prestigious football programs, but which ones are giving him the most attention?

"I would say that USC and UCLA are the two schools recruiting me the hardest," Johnson said.

While he is receiving more attention from certain schools, Johnson doesn't favor anyone at this point in his recruitment.

In addition, Johnson doesn't have anything officially scheduled for the summer, but plans on camping at the Pac-12 schools located in the state of California.

"I am probably going to all the ones that happen in-state," Johnson said. "That would be USC, Cal, UCLA and Stanford."

With plenty of options to choose from, Johnson has left the door open to possibly play college football in another region of the country. At the end of it all, however, the defensive back expects to land in the Pac-12.

"I am open," Johnson said. "But I will probably end up in the Pac-12."

There are many factors that can sway the decision of a high school football prospect, but in Johnson's case, he is just looking for the best fit.

"I am trying to find the best school overall and the things they will be able to offer me," Johnson said.

With a summer and a full season of football ahead, there is more than enough time for Johnson to choose his destination. Given all the attention he is getting and offers he holds, does he have a timeline for making a decision?

"I don't," Johnson said. "Whenever I make the choice is whenever, but I don't know if it will be the next few days or at the end of the whole recruiting deal."
