Big-time 2018 WR Camron Johnson being pursued by many major programs

Brentwood (Tenn.) Academy four-star wide receiver Camron Johnson's stock continues to rise and he spoke with Scout about the latest developments in his recruitment,

Camron Johnson scholarship list has reached double digits.

Although numerous schools are pursuing him, he is not ready to make any major decisions.

"I'm still pretty wide open right now," said the 6-foot-1, 180-pound Johnson. "I'll probably narrow it down to five schools sometime this summer and take all my officials during the season.

"I'm not completely sure what teams will be in the five, but Tennessee and Vanderbilt have a good chance. I'm not 100 percent sure, though, because things can change."

According to the Brentwood Academy standout, Georgia Tech, Ohio State, Tennessee and Vanderbilt are recruiting him hardest, and he gave a quick thought on each school.

Georgia Tech: "They're one of my most recent offers and one of my former teammates -- Brandon Adams -- goes there," Johnson said. "It's also close to home and they don't throw the ball a ton, but they've had some big-time receivers."

Ohio State: "They haven't offered yet, but we've been talking for a while and I've visited twice. I think they could offer soon and if they did, they would be a big-time factor because I really like Ohio State."

Tennessee: "They were my first offer and that was definitely big. I also like new receivers coach Kevin Beard and we've gotten along really well so far."

Vanderbilt: "It's obviously close to home and it's great academically. I  also really think coach (Derek) Mason is doing a great job and has the program headed in the right direction."

His next visit will be to Florida on March 25.

"They haven't offered, but have been showing a lot of interest," Johnson. "I haven't visited before, so I'm looking forward to seeing everything. I want to see what the campus is like and get to know the coaching staff. I know it's a big-time program, so I'm excited.

"I've been talking (assistant) coach (Corey) Bell a lot. He's been telling me he really wants me to come visit so I can see everything."

Johnson also plans to visit Tennessee and Vanderbilt this spring.
