Johnson Waiting For TCU Offer

Gainesville, Texas athlete Denzel Johnson is hoping to get a TCU offer.

Gainesville, Texas rising prospect Denzel Johnson has seen his recruitment pick up in recent weeks with an offer from UTSA and strong interest from TCU. The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder took a mid-week official visit to UTSA last week and this past weekend he was on TCU's campus for an official visit.

"It was good, I liked the visit a lot," Johnson said. "I liked the campus and I liked the stadium. It was a good overall visit. They had a lot of good stuff I haven't seen before at other colleges.

Johnson, who excelled at quarterback and safety for the Leopards, was hoping for a TCU offer while on his visit. However, an offer wasn't extended but all hope is not lost just yet as he was told by Gary Patterson that they will give him a final answer by Monday.

"They said right now they don't have an offer on the table and that I'd have to wait until Monday and I'd know something that evening," he said. "They're going to call Coach Hall."

One quick glimpse of Johnson's highlights will show his versatility on the football field. He said for now Patterson is intrigued with his potential to play several positions.

"He said I could play one of four positions which is safety, outside linebacker depending on how big I get, wide receiver and runningback," Johnson said. "Those are the four positions they're looking at me at. They said whenever I come in they would move me to wherever they need me."

Johnson still has a quality offer from UTSA if TCU doesn't come through with an offer. In the meantime, he'll wait to see how things play out with the Frogs.

"I'm just going to wait another 24-hours and see what happens," Johnson said.
