Johnson gets new offer

Junior wide receiver C.J. Johnson expects to see multiple programs stop by his school this week.

After attending Wyoming's junior day over the weekend, Bellevue West high school wide receiver C.J. Johnson has his first Mountain West Conference offer.

"I really liked the atmosphere up there and Coach Bohl is an excellent coach," said Johnson. "I would love to go there and help build the program to be one of the best in the country."

The Cowboys join schools like Ohio, Western Michigan, and South Dakota State to offer a scholarship, while programs like Nebraska, Kansas, Kansas State, Missouri, and Wisconsin continue the evaluation process.

Johnson is coming off a season where he caught 79 receptions for 1,360 yards and 17 touchdowns. He added a few more touchdowns as a punt returner.

The Nebraska prep is expecting to see the Husker coaching staff visit his school on Thursday, while Wyoming is expected in Bellevue West's hallways on Friday.

While Nebraska already has one wide receiver committed, an offer for Johnson is not out of the question. It's expected the summer-camp process will be very crucial for the legacy recruit's scholarship chances.
