Offers Rolling In For Johnson

Osseo (Minn.) tight end Will Johnson talked with about the Gophers' spring game, his new offers and recent visit.

How'd you like the spring game today? Anything stand out to you?
"I liked it a lot, what stood out to me was how Coach Kill was really coaching his players up during the scrimmage, but also how he got on his staff when things didn't go how he wanted."

Did you get to meet any of the Gopher commits or other prospects?
"Yes, I got to know Jonah [Pirsig] pretty well and also many of the other recruits. It seems like a solid group of athletes."

Do you get to talk to him about his visit?
"We more just talked about how things with recruiting had been going for each other, but everyone there seemed to be enjoying it.

Have you received any new offers recently?
"Yeah, from Iowa State and UNI."

Have you visited those schools yet or have anything set up yet?
"I have visited Iowa State and have not yet set anything up with UNI."

How was the Iowa State visit? Did anything stand out?
"They talked a lot about how its ‘were you eat, sleep and play' and those three things were real nice there. Also the practice I got to see was full contact, which is nice to see this early in the year."

Are you planning to attend any camps this spring?
"If a school I am interested in asks me to I will. I was invited to a few Under Armour All-American camps and some Nike ones that I'll go to if my coach wants me to."
