Scout 100 WR going with the flow

A Scout 100 wide receiver has a leader and he talks about that, what he is looking for in a school, when he plans to commit, and more here...

Over 20 schools have offered Tyron Johnson, the top prospect in Louisiana on He is being pursued and things are about to busy for him again as the spring evaluation period starts Tuesday.

He is not worrying about the recruiting process right now though.

"It is still early in the [recruiting] process for me," said Johnson. "I am just going with the flow right now. I am not thinking too much about it (recruiting) right now."

Johnson has thought enough about recruiting though that he has come up with a leader.

"My leader is Texas Tech. I just like how they throw the ball around. I see how their offense is run and I like that. I have not visited there yet, but I feel I would get a chance to make a lot of plays in that offense."

Kevin Curtis coaches defensive backs at Texas Tech and he is the lead recruiter for Johnson. Those two are building a relationship.

Another coach the No. 57 prospect in the country talks with is Frank Wilson of LSU. Wilson grew up in New Orleans, so he has a lot of connections there.

Wilson and the Tigers want the star out of Warren Easton.

"LSU is coming at me very hard," said Johnson. "I went up there and watched a spring practice recently and it was nice. I have been there a lot, I know Coach Wilson well and he is my recruiter, so I have interest in LSU."

At this time, Johnson said the Red Raiders lead, not the in-state Tigers. That may surprise some.

"I do hear a lot about LSU being in Louisiana. There is pressure to go there, but it may not be the school for me. I kind of grew up a fan of LSU, but I have never been a big fan of any one school. I just liked football and the good teams.

"LSU is a good school and I know I will visit there again. I am just looking at all the schools."

Auburn had the 6-foot-2, 190 pound wideout on their campus Friday. He had a good time looking around the campus and meeting the coaching staff, but he wants to see more out of the Auburn offense.

"I will be watching Auburn play this year to see how much they throw the ball. I know they run the ball well, but the coaches told me they are going to throw it down the field more this season. That is what I want to see."

Auburn, LSU, and plenty of others have the time to recruit Johnson and show him what it has to offer. He is not going to make his decision until early 2015.

"I am going to commit at the Under Armour All-America game," said Johnson. "Before then, I will just do what I do. I do not have any visits scheduled for this summer and I am not sure who I will visit in the fall yet.

"I know I will take my official visits before I commit and that I want to play in an offense that I can get the ball in. That is it right now."
