Garrett Johnson (Winter Garden, Fla./West Orange) is a 2014 wide receiver prospect with a lot of talent. He's a part of the Central Florida Top Recruits 7-on-7 team that played this weekend at the IMG Madden 7v7 National Championships.

"I am good speed and good hands," Johnson said. "And I run good routes."

As a sophomore Johnson had a big year, catching 58 passes for over 1,000 yards and 11 scores. While it's early in the recruiting process for Johnson three schools are showing interest and one stands out of that trio.

"Florida, South Florida and Louisville are all showing me a lot of interest at this point," Johnson said. "I know it's early. I camped at Super Bull and I may be going to Friday Night Lights at Florida at the end of the month.

"Right now I love Florida. I grew up a fan. I also went to a game there once and just fell in love with the atmosphere. I also really like the coaches there."

Johnson is 5-foot-10 and 163-pounds.
