WR has close to 40 offers, grew up Miami fan

Travis Johnson is one of the state's top wide receiver prospects and he talked about his interest in Miami, the recruiting process, and more.

Travis Johnson has been very busy in recent weeks. He talked about his recent travels.

"I went to USF's spring game a few weeks ago," Johnson said. "For Junior days I've been to Miami and Florida and I've visited all the Florida schools - Miami, Florida, Florida State, and USF. Summer is coming up so I'll be going out of state with Team Tampa (all-star 7on7 team) and we'll hit up Vanderbilt, Tennessee, and maybe Georgia on the way back. And me and my trainer will be taking a road trip to see Georgia, NC State, North Carolina, and I cant remember the last one."

Johnson, 6-foot-4 and 210 pounds, put his name on the recruiting map with an outstanding junior season at Jesuit High in Tampa. He finished the year with 48 catches for 653 yards and four scores. On defense, he logged 31 tackles and seven interceptions.

The standout receiver is closing in on 40 scholarship offers and he talked about where he stands with the whole process right now.

"At the moment, I don't have a top five or anything," he said. "I have a top 15. USC, with Monte Kiffin, Florida, Vanderbilt, and Notre Dame are the ones coming at me the hardest. Those would be my top four that I'm getting recruited the hardest."

Another school to keep an eye on, that has already offered, is Miami.

"I'd always be at my cousin's house and we'd always watch them so I grew up rooting for them," he said. "They were my dream school all growing up. I've been down there and they want me to be a big X receiver or maybe do some other things in their offense."

So while Johnson's not ready to single out any favorites, he talked about what he'll be looking for in a school.

"Location, where it's at," he said. "I'm not concerned about how cold it is or if it snows though. I really don't have anything negative things about any schools. I'm just looking for the best fit for me."
