Johnson offered by MSU, making decision soon

Glassboro (N.J.) wide receiver is hoping to have a decision in the coming two months. He talks some schools that he is most interested in and why an early decision is his focus.

Glassboro (N.J.) wide receiver Juwan Johnson has his sights set on making a decision in the next month or two and some Big Ten schools are sticking out to him.

"There's just not much better than the Big Ten as far as education wise and they just have great programs," he said. "I've been looking at business programs and that's a big thing in the Big Ten, they have pretty good business programs."

That desire has put schools like Ohio State, Penn State and Michigan high on Johnson's list.

He also received an offer from Michigan State last week from wide receivers coach Terry Samuel.

"He just said he liked me and they watched my film and they like how I play," he said. "It's a school I have interest in but I hadn't heard much from them except for getting letters, but I know a little bit about Michigan State and I'm going to go online and learn more about it."

The 6-foot-4, 190-pound receiver did take in the Spartans' Rose Bowl win against Stanford on Jan. 1.

"They had everything," he said. "They were clicking on all cylinders, defense and offense. They do it all."

He hasn't taken spring visits yet, but is hoping to get out and check out some of his schools of interest, which also include Florida State and Wisconsin among others, before his decision.

He said wanting to make a decision is just to get the process completed.

"It's kind of about getting a lot of stress off me," he said. "It's a lot to deal with."
