Ole Miss offers Florida wide out

Davon Johnson (WR, Miami, FL) - The Booker T Washington standout collected 22 catches for 422 yards and 4 TD's as a junior.

Johnson is also a track star and finished 2nd in District in the 200 meter race and 1st in the 400 meter event. Davon is the Regional champ in the 400 meter run and hopes to make even further progress during the state meets that start on Friday.

But the main focus for Johnson will be on the gridiron where he feels like he shines the brightest.

"I just use my speed to outrun the corners," added Davon Johnson. "I feel like I am very elusive too."

During Booker T Washington's banquet on Saturday, Johnson racked up a few awards.

"I was named Special Teams MVP, Outstanding JR, and the Scholar Athlete Award. That is what I am most proud about, having the best grades out of all of my teammates."

Davon's 3.0 Core GPA and skills have attracted colleges from around the country.

"My latest offer is from Ole Miss. They offered me like two weeks ago. Rutgers, Miami, FIU, and Central Florida have offered me full rides too."

Which colleges are at the top of Johnson's list?

"It is between Miami, Central Florida, and Ole Miss is in the mix too and Minnesota too."

What does Davon like about each school?

Miami - "I just like the tradition at Miami."

Central Florida - "I know they are an up and coming program, and it would be good for a kid like me to come in and turn their program around."

Ole Miss - "My coach tells me it is a real good program, and I know it is a good program because they have some former coaches from Miami. I also have followed Brent Schaeffer for a while. I like his style. They have offered two of my teammates too, WR Brandon Harris and DE Jonathan Jackson."

Minnesota - "It is like a quiet little place. They are in the mix. Their coach sounds like a father figure. I do not really know much about their program though."

Which colleges has Johnson had a chance to visit unofficially?

"I went to one of Rutgers' camps. I attended a track meet at Florida, and I have been to South Florida for a football game. I have been over to Miami's campus a bunch."

Which campus felt the most at home?

"Rutgers felt like a good place to stay, and Miami felt like it was in my back yard."
