Scout.com ranks the 6-foot-2, 175-pound Polk as its No. 70 receiver nationally in the 2014 class. He's coming off of a junior season that saw him catch 31 passes for 762 yards and seven touchdowns at Hamilton Southeastern High in Fishers, IN.

"I'm just looking for a school that not only has a good football team but also a place where I can get a good education as well," Polk said. "When it comes to the football program, I'm looking for a team that passes a lot."

Johnson did not talk about a scholarship offer with Polk, he said.

Polk, who is considering sports marketing and sports administration majors for college, is attending a combine in Cincinnati this weekend and a Nike camp in May. He's still hoping to catch the eye of more college scouts.

"I haven't decided when I'm going to commit yet, but I'm in no rush," Polk said. "I want to wait and see if any more options come to the table before I make a decision."
