Marcus Johnson Has Top 3

Marcus Johnson is likely to take some visits this month

Marcus Johnson, an athletic 6-5 forward from the West Coast, is likely to take some campus trips in the month of August. It's already been reporter there is a possibility that Johnson could visit Louisville this weekend, according to Louisville site publisher, Mike Hughes of the Insiders network.

Sources told the Insiders Report that Johnson, who was unavailable to talk today, is thinking about taking trips to Connecticut and Syracuse in late August. Johnson may attend a camp designed to make the high school player a better shooter.

Marcus is certainly a tremendous athlete but does need to polish up his perimeter skills to be a more complete player for the small forward slot. He has great bounce and spring in his step and is one of the more exciting players in the 2005 class.

It's still unclear when and where Johnson will take his first visit this month. But it is a possibility that perhaps he might be able to swing all three visits in August.
