Five and counting for Johnson

Jaquan Johnson will be a name to remember in the 2015 class and the Killian (Miami, FL) standout is already turning plenty of heads. The Sunshine State athlete now has five big-time offers and that list is sure to grow.

Jaquan Johnson has offers from Florida, Florida State, Ole Miss, Clemson, and most recently, Miami. The 5-foot-10, 180-pound athlete visited the Hurricanes for junior day on Saturday and picked up the offer then.

"(The coaches have) been coaching for awhile, so they have experience. They knew what they were talking about. Miami sends most people to the NFL so I like it."

The 2015 standout finished his sophomore season with seven interceptions, 16 touchdowns, and 74 tackles. He said coaches like that he can make an impact from several positions, but he plans on playing in the secondary at the next level.

"They like that I'm versatile and that I can play both sides of the ball, but I've told them that I'm going for safety and they've accepted that," he said.

While he's not yet sure of which junior days or camps he'll be going to, Johnson mentioned Florida and Clemson as possibilities. In the meantime, he's focused on taking his game to the next level this spring.

"I'm just working on my hips and being able to get quicker and faster so I can come out of my breaks," Johnson said.
