Johnson well on his way to playing D-1

Garden City is going through a coaching change, but that hasn't hurt the recruitment of WR Corey Johnson (6-0, 190). The talented wideout has three offers and more could be on the way...

Johnson prepped at Muskegon (Mi.) High School, but was unable to qualify so he headed to the Golden State to be closer to his brother who was playing at USC.

"My brother Ronald Johnson is out there," Johnson told "I went out there to play for College of the Canyons and then changed to El Camino, but after a while, things just weren't panning out right for me there, so by then, my mom had really felt comfortable with the Garden City coaches.

"I came to Garden City and redshirted in 2008 and then last year they had me at free safety on defense," Johnson said. "This year though, I played receiver and that's my more natural position.

"We didn't really have a very good offense this year, but I played alright."

Johnson led the Broncbusters with 47 receptions for 500 yards and five touchdowns and that productivity plus his natural athleticism has gained him the attention of several programs and he's got offers from three schools and two more could be on the way.

"I have offers from Idaho, Troy and Arkansas State and Bowling Green and North Texas are real close and have told me they are going to soon," Johnson said. "I visited Troy last week and I'm visiting Arkansas State on December 4th.

"I will visit either Bowling Green or North Texas on December 11th, but I haven't officially set up a visit to either one yet."

Johnson said most schools are looking at him as a slot receiver and he feels comfortable in that role although he can play any of the receiver spots.

The talented wideout will be able to sign with a school next month and he will have two years to play two wherever he ends up.
