Johnson talks early standouts

Brandon Johnson has a nice list of early offers and the 2016 receiver already has his eye one a few of them.

South Carolina, Miami, Wisconsin, Duke, Louisville, Cincinnati, and Florida Atlantic have all offered Brandon Johnson. The Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage standout receiver says coaches have given him a lot of feedback about what he does well on the field.

“They like the way I run my routes, the way I run, how smooth I am. They tell me they just like my game,” he said.

The 6-foot-3, 165-pound junior has a long time before signing day 2016, but he is liking a couple of schools already.

“It’s a little early, but I like Miami definitely, and I definitely like South Carolina,” he said.

Johnson has plenty of history with the Miami program. His father, MLB standout Charles Johnson played baseball for the ‘Canes. Johnson says that gives them “a little bit” of an advantage in his recruitment. South Carolina is another one to watch. Johnson camped there last summer and really enjoyed the experience.

“I like the atmosphere and I really like their facilities, the team, the way everything felt up there,” he said.

He hopes to catch a game in South Carolina this fall and will definitely catch one in Miami. The three-star receiver is hoping to add more offers to his list, especially from in-state schools Florida State and Florida.

“There’s always others out there, but those are the two at the top of my mind,” he said.

“I’m keeping it more open-minded. I’m not going to single out one school, I’m trying to really look at my options.”

Johnson’s 2016 teammate, receiver Dredrick Snelson, is already committed to Miami, but he isn’t expecting to make his decision soon.
