Gophers Offer Carolina Speedster

The Minnesota Golden Gophers have extended a scholarship to Kannapolis (N.C.) A.L. Brown WR Keeon Johnson.

According to Scout.com's Chad Simmons, The Minnesota Golden Gophers have extended a scholarship to Kannapolis (N.C.) A.L. Brown WR Keeon Johnson.

Aside from the Minnesota scholarship on Tuesday, Johnson has offers from Miami, Duke, East Carolina, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Virginia, and Wake Forest.

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound speedster could see more offers rolling in following his recent performance that Shrine Bowl Combine where he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.38 seconds.

Johnson is not in a rush to choose a school. He thinks it will be at least mid-season before he starts to think about making a decision.
