At 6-foot-1 and 190 pounds, New Orleans (La.) O.P. Walker standout free safety Daryl Johnson is having an excellent season.
Part of a 6-0 start, Johnson has seven interceptions and one defensive touchdown. On offense, he has three touchdown receptions, and is also averaging 34 yards per return on special teams.
Johnson, who will try to increase his ACT score by one point on October 26, said recruiting has been going well.
"I recently set up an official visit to Miami and Colorado," Johnson said. "Me and Craig (teammate Craig Davis) are going to Miami on January 24. I like those two plus LSU, Tennessee, Florida, Ole Miss, there are still lots of em."
Johnson, who said all of his favorites have offered a scholarship, watched the Miami/Florida State game on TV last Saturday.
"Wow, what a close game," he said. "FSU showed they're for real to be able to compete with Miami like that. But as I suspected, Miami pulled it out in the end."
Johnson, who denies a favorite, talked more about the Hurricanes.
"I've been likin Miami," he said. "I have been loving their team for the longest [time]. I might go play free safety for them. Coach Wayne (Reggie Wayne's father) has a lot of good things to say about them. And I have a cousin (Akieem Jolla) who said he's having a great time there now. He's already playing as a true freshman. Me and Craig both like Miami a lot."
