Dontae Johnson, a 6-foot-4, 190-pound two-sport star from The Pennington School in Pennington, New Jersey, was offered today by the University of Virginia, according to his AAU basketball coach, Matt Pauls.

Johnson has been piling up offers recently. It was only a week ago that Big Ten school Minnesota offered Dontae a scholarship.

Dontae, who also has offers from Connecticut, North Carolina State, Maryland and Michigan State, is also considering Virginia Tech, Duke, Georgia and Florida.

Dontae is also solid division one prospect in basketball. He helped his high school team win the Mercer County tournament last night.

Johnson competes in football at the wide receiver/safety position. He's been timed in the 40 in 4.5 seconds.

A 2010 prospect, Dontae is also an exceptional student, holding a 3.8 grade point average.
