Johnson sets two visit dates

Jajuan Johnson is focused on five schools. He's currently set two visit dates and is working on another.

Coming off a strong summer, Jajuan Johnson,'s No. 31 prospect in the 2013 class, narrowed his list of schools.

"It's been going good," Johnson said of his recruiting process. "I'm trying to narrow down my five."

"I basically have my five of Alabama, Memphis, Louisville, Texas and Miami," the Memphis (Tenn.) Southwind standout said.

Playing for the Bluff City Legends, Johnson knew he would get some good attention, but didn't expect the school interest to roll in like it did in the spring.

"I was surprised," Johnson said. "I wasn't expecting to get the attention I got because I was behind J3 [Johnathan Williams] and Nick [King]."

With his list of five, Johnson's next step is to begin taking visit. He currently has two dates and is working on a third.

"I'm taking my visits throughout the season," Johnson said. "I have three planned right now. I'm going to Miami September 15, Texas for October 6th and I'm going to be planning my visit to Alabama real soon."

Johnson said he's planning to also visit Louisville and Memphis. At this point, Johnson doesn't claim a leader.

"Not right now," he responded when asked if anyone stood out. "They all are calling me everyday."

Johnson did mention Memphis' recent commitment Markel Crawford may impact his recruitment.

"They had got Markel and they are still recruiting me," Johnson said.

"When Markel committed they were still recruiting me and I didn't understand that because they got Markel," he added. "They are involved, but that was one of my favorite schools, but now they are just a school involved right now."

Johnson is regarded as the No. 8 shooting guard in the 2013 recruiting class.
