Trotwood-Madison High School (Ohio) wide receiver, Caleb Johnson knew it was only a matter of time before he brought in his first offer. On June 6, that came true for Johnson as the Toledo Rockets extended a scholarship to the 2018 wide out. Johnson says the first offer means a lot to him and he's highly interested in the Rockets.
"I want to thank God and this is not the end, I'm going to keep grinding and going hard during the season," Johnson said, "I'd like to help lead my team to a state ring."
Now with the Toledo offer in hand, other teams may not be far behind the Rockets. Johnson says he has received a lot of interest from Bowling Green, Cincinnati, Kentucky, Michigan and West Virginia as the offers could start to pile in.
"This offer means everything to me, it showed me that my hard work has been paying off and it doesn't stop here," Johnson added. "I love the Toledo coaching staff and they show me a lot of love. I will be to Toledo for a visit as soon as possible," he added.
As far as an exact timeframe for a Toledo visit, Johnson says he isn't quite sure but says he'd love to visit soon. Johnson, from Trotwood, Ohio says he's heard a lot of good things about the Rockets and loves how they're always very competitive in the Mid-American Conference.
Johnson, a true playmaker on the outside of the field as a receiver threat, caught 52 passes for 700 yards and also had three interceptions as a defensive back. The explosive Johnson also possesses great speed on the outside of the field and has the ability to play in slot receiver as well, wherever he lands.
