Omari Johnson, 6-7 SR PF Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey, is one of the better shooting big men in the west. We spoke with Johnson yesterday and he gave us a list of schools that have contacted him since July.

"Wyoming, Long Beach State, Portland, San Diego and Montana State are the main ones," said Johnson.

We asked Johnson if he had a feel for which school is recruiting him the hardest.

"Wyoming, San Diego and Montana State," said Johnson.

Johnson told us he has offers from Wyoming, Long Beach State, San Diego and Montana State.

When questioned about the factors he'll consider when making his choice, Johnson said, "the academics and how I fit in with the team."

Johnson said he may sign in November, but will wait until spring if he is not satisfied with his options.
