Clearwater, Florida cornerback Mike Johnson has added another major offer to his sizeable list today, as the Big Ten-bound Rutgers Scarlet Knights offered the 2014 three-star CB today. Johnson is reportedly leaning towards an in-state power in the Florida State Seminoles, and he is also very interested in a pair of in-state programs in the South Florida Bulls and UCF Knights. The Louisville Cardinals are also in a great position with Johnson early on, and he would be a solid catch for any of those programs.
The Countryside High standout also has offers from the Cincinnati Bearcats, Iowa State Cyclones, Indiana Hoosiers, Virginia Cavaliers, Texas Tech Red Raiders, Vanderbilt Commodores, and Purdue Boilermakers. Mike Johnson is rated by the 247Composite as the 502nd-best recruit in the 2014 class, and it will be interesting to see if the three-star recruit can crack the top 500.
Johnson is 5’11”, 175 pounds and displays excellent speed with a 4.5 forty time. Both Florida State writers Josh Newberg and the great Chris Nee have tabbed Florida State as the team to land Johnson, and the ‘Noles are certainly in an excellent position to bring Johnson north from Clearwater to Tallahassee. Lawrence Dawsey is actively trying to give Jimbo Fisher one of the top 40 cornerbacks in the country, and Johnson is also widely rated as one of the best 75 recruits overall in the state of Florida.
A coach from Florida State is checking in with the Countryside star today, and four teams checked in with the heavily recruited CB yesterday. The visits from coaches keeping pouring in this spring for Johnson, and it will be interesting to see which schools he visits in the near future. Johnson’s most recent visit was to Florida State last month, and he enjoyed watching the Seminoles spring game.
