Buffs to Offer Small Town Athlete?

Colorado has made a habit of searching at the smaller schools for talent in Colorado over the last couple years. <a href="http://scout.theinsiders.com/a.z?s=148&p=8&c=1&nid=1551730">Weston Johnson</a> is a player that really impressed the staff at their summer camps and they have been in close contact with Johnson ever since.

"I just sent Colorado film from this year," explained Johnson. "Coach Wristen told me they will watch the film this week and we will go from there. I speak with Coach Wristen about once a week."

Johnson might remind many Buff fans of players like Tom Hubbard and Dusty Sprague. Both from middle-of-nowhere locations that were jack-of-all-trade types for their schools. As a junior, Johnson had 75 tackles and three interceptions on defense. On offense, he had 30 receptions for 406 yards and two touchdowns, and 15 carries for 93 yards and one touchdown. He was named first team all-conference and honorable mention all-state for the 2A conference. Wray High was 2A last year but due to enrollment numbers they have dropped to 1A this fall. Johnson is also a standout center fielder/pitcher and was named honorable mention all-state in the 3A class, last season. He also finished fourth in state in the triple jump.

The athlete received his first written offer two weeks ago from Wyoming. "I am going there for an official visit October 30th."

He attended the CU-CSU game and also the Kansas State-Fresno State game. Johnson plans to make it back to Boulder next weekend for the Iowa State game.

Wyoming and CU are his top schools. "They both have great programs. Even if CU offered it would be hard to say who leads. I really like both schools."

He elaborates on CU. "Colorado has a good football program and they know how to win. I have been up there and it seems like the coaches know what they are doing."

Johnson is orginally from Great Bend, Kansas and he moved to Colorado when he was eight.

This summer, he attended camps at CU, CSU, Nebraska, and Kansas State. Other then the Buffs and Cowboys, he favors the Rams and Wildcats.

His parents do not have a favorite. "They just want me to get a good education."

On the season for 5-0 Wray, he has two interceptions, two receiving touchdowns, one kickoff return for a touchdown, and 14 carries for 220 yards. Most schools like him as a safety or a linebacker. "That is what they are telling me. I would prefer to play outside linebacker but it really doesn't matter."

Johnson thinks he has a good feel for the game. "I have good athleticism and I flow well to the football."

Wray takes on Wiggins in their Homecoming game, tonight.
