(Patrick Johnson profile)
The five-star prospect will make one more official visit before the season ends, heading to USC for the Trojans' matchup with UCLA. After that, it could be time for a final decision.
"Patrick is totally open at this time between four schools," Patrick Johnson, Sr. told FightinGators.com. "It is Florida, Miami, LSU and Southern Cal."
Johnson took a trip to Gainesville for the Gators' 59-20 romp over Tennessee. Then two weeks ago, he was in Baton Rouge for LSU's comeback win against Auburn.
"We went out to LSU and had a great time there," Johnson, Sr. said.
The hometown Miami Hurricanes are also still a consideration for the 6-1, 195-pound corner who possess 4.4 speed.
"We just need to sit down as a family and make the best decision for Patrick," Johnson, Sr. said.
That decision could be made in December.
"We're going to try and make a decision by December because Patrick has a chance of being an early enrolee," Johnson, Sr. said.
Johnson excels on both sides of the football. As a junior, he picked off seven passes and posted 54 tackles. He also returned three kicks for touchdowns while rushing for 213 yards.
