CALVIN JOHNSON, WR, 6'4, 210, 4.4, TYRONE, (SANDY CREEK HS), GEORGIA:
Calvin Johnson is among the elite wide receivers in the country. Blessed with tremendous speed and agility, Johnson is a franchise wide receiver who can turn a program's passing game around. Johnson broke onto the prep scene a year ago by catching 34 passes for 628 yards and ten touchdowns.
"I believe that I can be a lot better this year, but I now know what I need to do to work on getting better. Last year we weren't really a passing team, but this year we plan on throwing the football more and I think I will get more opportunities."
Johnson lettered as a sophomore and starts in baseball in centerfield. Johnson has been to the Georgia Tech camp thus far and he hopes to go the Georgia camp later this summer. Johnson can bench 260 pounds, squats 425 and he has a 39-inch vertical jump. Johnson has been offered by over 10 colleges and says he expects more to be on the way.
"I like schools basically in the Southeast, but I am not going to say I have any favorites," said Johnson. "I am looking at Georgia Tech, Georgia, Notre Dame, Vanderbilt, Stanford and Oklahoma. Those would be my top six schools at the moment."
Johnson says Oklahoma has recently sent an offer his way.
"I really like Oklahoma's offense and how they use their passing game," said Johnson. "Oklahoma has a great future and they are currently ranked number in the country. I think Oklahoma will be on of the schools that I visit."
Johnson has qualified.
