YAHTZEE!! Florida WR Garrett Johnson commits to UK

uk-football yahtzeeBy LARRY VAUGHT

Kentucky picked up another verbal commit today when West Orange (Fla.) receiver Garrett Johnson picked the Wildcats over Arizona, Boston College and South Florida. He had recently narrowed his list of 11 schools to those four.

The 5-9, 162-pound Johnson recently told Chris Hayes,  the Orlando Sentinel’s recruiting coverage coordinator, what he liked best about UK.

“Just me talking to Coach [Chad] Scott [running backs coach] a lot really helped me out and the bond has grown between me and him. Also, me knowing a few of their players like Jeff [Badet], and Jojo [Kemp] and Blake [McClain], that’s helping let me know a lot about what’s going on at Kentucky right now … they always give me honest feedback.”

USF: “The new coaching staff, I love them. I’ve always been a big fan of USF even with the previous coaching staff, and I’ve kept a good bond and everything so the feel for USF for me hasn’t changed.”

Johnson is a slot-type receiver who Hayes says “has a strong upper body and can fill any of the wide-receiver roles.” He runs a 4.47 40-yard dash. He is ranked among the top 100 players in Florida and caught 104 passes for 1,699 yards and 17 touchdowns during his sophomore and junior years.

    Welcome Garrett. BBN is glad you are on board with the Kentucky Wildcats

    West Orange HS borders Dr. Phillips HS ( where my kids went to high school ). DP has 26 kids currently playing D-1 FB. Glad we are making in-roads in the greater Orlando area ! Great work by Coach Scott.

    Great news!! Keep em coming. I hope we do get a tall 6″4 receiver as well to be a deep threat.

    Great pu. Hope we can still get Berrios. Think our chances our slipping more each week with him that he doesn’t commit.

  5. Andy

    With Ohio State offering, that certainly changes the landscape. Kid has options and i wouldn’t say we are out of the picture completely but I think the staff is keeping its options open.

  6. Love SEC F-Ball

    Garrett, we are glad that you are now a part of BBN.
    U.K. fans everywhere welcome you!
