DeJoshua: "I'm Ready to Go!"

Florida State had a busy weekend as they hosted nearly 10 recruits for official visits. Long-time commitment DeJoshua Johnson spoke to NoleDigest about his visit Sunday.

DeJoshua Johnson has been to Florida State numerous times for unofficial visits and camps, but this weekend he made his official to FSU. Coming into the visit Johnson had stated that he wanted to view the visit in the eyes of a student. He told NoleDigest the visit was outstanding.

"The visit was awesome," said the 4-star wide receiver. "I loved everything about it. The players were fun to be around and I think I fit right in there. Just the school itself I am comfortable going there."

Johnson was hosted by Bert Reed, a player many fans feel DeJoshua is similar too. He said he had a great time with Bert and that he spent a lot of time with many different Seminoles.

"Bert was my host and he was a lot of fun," Johnson said, "but I also spent time with Christian Ponder, Lonnie Pryor, Willie Haulstead, Rodney Hudson, Henry Orelus, Greg Reid, Clint Trickett and all the other boys who were in town on their visits. It was a lot of fun for sure."

Johnson got the chance to sit down with the coaches and talk about how they envision him in their offense.

"It's nothing but big plans for me in their offense," said a confident Johnson. "They are ready to get me there. They want to line me up in the slot and out wide, and they are going to use me as a primary kick returner. I'm ready to go!"

DeJoshua recently stated that he wanted to make a couple visits to check out what other schools are doing. The programs he mentioned were Alabama and Michigan. Did the visit change those plans?

"The coaches know what's up with me," said Johnson. "I really don't know now if I am going to or if I want to take those visits. I feel right at home in Tallahassee."

One of the developments from the visit was DeJoshua finding out he'd be wearing the vaunted #1 jersey for the Seminoles. They past few players to wear it haven't had the success they thought they'd have. Johnson says he's going to break that jinx.

"It's time to break that and I'm just going to ball," said Johnson. "I don't care if I was wearing #100."
