"I saw that they did a lot of trick plays, which I think is pretty cool. I don't know for sure, but it seemed like they threw the ball 80-percent of the time – that's something I like."
Following the visit, UNC is firmly among Johnson's top three schools – along with Notre Dame and Virginia. All three schools – plus four others – have offered the 6-foot-2, 193-pound wide receiver from Kannapolis (N.C.) Brown. He has also visited all three favorites.
"I like the atmosphere [at those three schools] and how the coaches greet me and spend time talking to me," Johnson said.
Johnson, who is looking to make a verbal commitment during the football season, denies a leader, but that is about to change.
"I feel that all three are equal, but soon there will be a team that leads," Johnson said.
Following the game, Johnson had a quick conversation with Gunter Brewer, UNC's wide receivers coach and Johnson's primary recruiter.
"He was talking about how he's going to start coming to the school [because of the Evaluation Period]," Johnson said. "We always talk about how track is going and how basketball was."
UNC has signed a prospect from Brown High School in the past two recruiting classes – Travis Riley (2011) and Damien Washington (2012).
"Damien, when he first committed, he told me I could come down there and visit with him," Johnson said. "Travis Riley would say the same thing. But as the season went on, they laid off me. If I [visit] a school, Damian will ask me how it went. He's always asking me how things are going [recruiting-wise]."
Other than UNC's camp this summer, Johnson is unsure of any future visit plans.
