Western's Jimorris Johnson talks camp & favorites

Western High School receiver Jimorris Johnson has flown under the radar throughout the spring, but the 6-foot-5, 195-pound prospect is hoping to change that during the month of June.

Johnson, who pulled in nearly 500 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns as a junior, attended Louisville's QB/WR camp on Sunday and is planning on attending upcoming camps at both Kentucky and Auburn.

"I think I did alright at U of L's camp," Johnson said. "I probably could have run some of my routes better, but I did okay. It was a great turnout, I didn't think that there would be so many guys out there."

Johnson said that he also received favorable feedback from Louisville assistant coaches Paul Petrino and Greg Nord.

"He was telling me that I catch the ball real good," he said of his conversation with the Cardinals offensive coordinator.

When it comes to recruiting, Johnson says that he is receiving quite a bit of interest from around the region, but that an offer has yet to come his way.

"I'm getting stuff from something like 45 schools," said Johnson, who moved from Alabama to Louisville when he was eleven. "I don't have any [offers] yet, but I think Louisville and Kentucky may be close."

He continued to mention that the two in-state Division I-A programs are among a trio at the top of list of current favorites.

"Basically I like Auburn, Louisville and Kentucky right now," he said.

Johnson and a number of his teammates will face Fairdale High School in a 7-on-7 event on Wednesday, as well as participating in Male High School's 7-on-7 this coming weekend.
