Vols coaches get up-close look at 4-star WR Camron Johnson

Tennessee coaches were able to get an up-close look at one of the premier 2018 class wide receivers with Camron Johnson taking part in Sunday's STATEment Day Camp.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Camron Johnson made his way over to Tennessee's first-ever satellite camp, which took place at Tennessee State University on Sunday.

The Brentwood (Tenn.) Academy wide receiver said wanted to compete, show love for Vols coaches and work out versus some of the better defensive backs in the Volunteer State.

The rising junior hears about the Big Orange from fourth-year coach Butch Jones but mostly speaks with passing game coordinator Zach Azzanni.

"We talk probably every week mainly," Johnson said of Azzanni.

Auburn, Ole Miss and Vanderbilt are Southeastern Conference programs that are also in contention.

"Tennessee, they're up there," the Scout four-star prospect from the 2018 class said. "They've shown me a lot of love over the course of the past couple years. So, they're up there just with all of them really."

Brentwood Academy earned the 2015 TSSAA Division II Class AA state championship. They Eagles get their fall schedule underway by taking on Olive Branch in Mississippi on Aug. 19.

The pass catcher has visits to SEC rivals of the Vols coming soon. For more from Johnson, click play on the exclusive video interview with InsideTennessee above.
