Donovan Johnson on 'Cuse: "It Felt Like Home"

Three-star cornerback Donovan Johnson details his first visit to Syracuse.

Eleven players from Michigan power Cass Tech visited Syracuse Sunday and Monday. One of those players was three-star cornerback Donovan Johnson, who entered the trip with an offer but was eager to learn more about the Orange. 

"My visit was great," Johnson said. "I love the coaches and the facilities. Syracuse is a great place."

One of the biggest highlights of the visit for the 5-foot-11 defensive back was spending time with the Orange coaches. Johnson said he spoke to nearly all of them and was able to start connecting with them. 

"All of the coaches kept it real with us," Johnson said. "It felt like home. The coaches were great. I'm very comfortable around them."

Despite it feeling like home, Johnson is not thinking about committing anytime soon. 

"I am not thinking about committing anywhere just yet," he said. "I just want to build my relationships more with each coach and try to get my parents involved before making any commitment."

As has seemingly been a theme for the visit, the new facilities were a big highlight for Johnson. 

"I was not expecting the facilities to be that good," he said. "The campus is great. They have a great school."

The visit overall left Johnson with a better view of Syracuse. He said it increased his interest in the Orange. Don't rule out a return trip to Central New York for Johnson.
