Pahokee receiver talks T-town camp

DeJoshua Johnson, three-star wide receiver from Pahokee, Fla., is one of the most electric playmakers in the South. He has received scholarship offers from across the country including one from the University of Alabama. Johnson spent four days in Tuscaloosa as we learned more of his camp experience.

"The visit to Alabama was real cool," said DeJoshua Johnson. "I worked out at the camp every day. I thought I did well. I won the MVP out there. I won the best receiver award, and I made the All-Saban team. I felt real good about it. I had fun."

"Coach Saban was telling me they could really use me. He told me I would be a perfect fit in their offense. He said they don't have anyone like me on their roster. He said I would help take a lot of pressure off Julio. He told me I would fit well in their scheme."

"I like coach Saban. I think all the coaches are cool. I like coach [Bobby] Williams and coach [Curt] Cignetti a lot as well. They are all really cool guys."

Johnson traveled to Alabama for the Tide's annual spring game in April. This trip was more coach-player oriented.

"I had already seen all the facilities before," Johnson said. "This time I wanted to just chill and work out at the camp. That was about it. Overall, I thought everything went really well. I had a good time at the camp."

The Tide ranks among Johnson's favorites which also includes Florida State and Miami.

"Alabama is still in my top three," he stated. "I like a lot of things about Alabama. I like the coaching staff and the players. I have a good vibe with players like Julio, B.J. Scott, Star Jackson and Trent Richardson. I wanted to touch base with those guys. I felt a real good vibe from them."

Johnson will travel to Miami Sunday to compete in their camp Monday. He plans a visit to Florida State in the near future as well.
