Davon Johnson is a talented wide receiver from Booker T. Washington High in Miami and as his team begins preparing for the Class 4A state championship game next Saturday, Johnson talked to about the latest.

On Saturday January 15th Booker T. Washington will be playing for its first ever state title versus Nease. One of the big reasons they have gotten this far is the play of wide receiver Davon Johnson. The 5-foot-11 165 pound receiver updated his recruiting situation.

"I visited Florida already," said Johnson. "I am visiting Miami later this month and South Florida on January 18th. Florida has a big college atmosphere."

Johnson is one of several talented South Florida receivers. He also helps Booker T. Washington in another sport.

"I am running track. We are the defending state champions. Our 1600m relay team won at states also."

Johnson has a 2.8 GPA and is one of the fastest players in the state.

"I have not had any in-home visits so far. I do not have any scheduled yet."

Johnson is still receiving interest from other schools. He updated his commitment status.

"I am committed to Miami. I am still looking around and making sure, but I am a Hurricane commit."

He talked about what he liked about the schools that are recruiting him.

"South Florida is an up and coming program. Miami is rebuilding. I like the players and coaching staff at Miami. I also like Miami's current recruiting class. A lot of the players in the class are people I played in Pop Warner with and played with in middle school."

Johnson is referring to the several South Florida prospects that have committed to Miami this season. One of those commitment is his teammate Thearon Collier another Booker T. wide receiver.

"It helps to have guys I know committed to Miami. I have been playing with a lot of those guys for a while already."
