Tampa (Fla.) Jesuit wide receiver Travis Johnson was waiting for a Miami offer and today, he got it. The 2013 prospect, after winning the Tight End MVP at the Al Golden Football Camp, impressed the Miami coaching staff. He talked about his commitment with CaneInsider.com.
“I just been a long time fan of Miami and they recruit hard workers who work day in and day out,” Johnson said. “I want to be that next guy in there to work hard and make it to next level. If not, I can get that degree… I have always been a Miami Hurricane since I was young.”
He was offered by Miami head coach Al Golden, but also talked with tight ends coach Brennan Carroll and offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch before he made his commitment.
“Head coach Al Golden actually offered me," Johnson said. “They were ecstatic (about his commitment). They weren't expecting it right away and I dropped it on them.”
Johnson, 6’3 and 235-pounds, gave his thoughts on the UM coaching staff. “I love them. Coach Carroll is a funny guy, a sarcastic guy.”
Is his recruitment over? “I am going to still take my five officials.”
He is being recruited as a tight end/slot receiver.
