Johnson: U-M Offer Would Impact Recruitment A Lot

Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech junior cornerback Donovan Johnson talks about his experience at the SMSB camp in Detroit, interest in the Wolverines and more.

Another camp, another solid performance for Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech junior cornerback Donovan Johnson. This camp season, the Motor City standout has been impressing each time and did once more, this time at the Sound Mind Sound Body camp in Detroit.

“My day went pretty good,” Johnson told The Michigan Insider. “I came out here today and competed at a high level. I’m happy with my performance."

Johnson is not done this summer competing as he’ll be heading out to Beaverton, Oregon for the Opening Finals, which he’s excited about.

“It’s relief and I worked hard all offseason to get to the Opening Finals,” said Johnson. “It’s a good feeling.”

The 5-foot-11, 178-pound speedy corner has also picked up new offers and interest from his recent stellar camp showings, but has yet to earn an offer from the Wolverines. While communication with Michigan has been low, he’s heard plenty of positives about the program from a few former hometown players.

“Not really (have I heard from Michigan),” said Johnson. “You know I have talked to Coach Harbaugh before and he said he is going to keep looking at me, so hopefully he will. I know Michigan is a very good school. I know a lot of Cass people are at Michigan, so it’s nice there and I love it there. I talk to Lavert Hill. He’s not at Michigan yet and I have talked to David Dawson before. It’s just good things coming from them. They are saying it is a great school and they are looking at me right now, so they are just saying to stay patient and it will come.”

Right now Johnson maintains he’s still open with no top list and hopes to have one sometime this summer, but also knows how much an Wolverine offer would factor into his recruitment as well.

“It would impact it a lot,” said Johnson. “They would be in my top five probably, but it depends on how much they really want me.”

Moving forward, Johnson plans to take all his official visits and will go to Virginia Tech, Penn State, West Virginia and probably Oregon.
