Caleb Johnson says he was offered by Miami yesterday.
"ELATED to be offered from the University of Miami, thank you (Coac Kool) for the opportunity"
At 6-foot-3 and 235 pounds, Johnson is a hybrid pass-rusher from Northside HS in Columbus, GA. He started as a sophomore and finished the season with 68 tackles and four sacks. It was a big time junior season, however, that really put his name on the recruiting map. He was voted the Region 1-AAAA Defensive Player of the Year for his performance on the field in 2016.
He plays both OLB and DE at the high school level but will likely grow into a full-time edge pass rusher in Manny Diaz's defensive system. Miami is recruiting him as a defensive end.
Johnson's first offer came from Missouri back in January. He has since added offers from schools like Florida, LSU, Ole Miss, and now Miami. The only visit he's taken this year is to Florida a couple weeks ago, a visit that resulted in him telling Scout's Chad Simmons that Florida was his top choice at the time.
The Canes don't have any commitments yet from pass rushers in their 2018 class. You can now add Johnson on the list of players to keep a close eye on at that position.
