Drico Johnson Is One To Watch
The state of Florida is blessed with some extremely impressive wide receiver prospects, and the name Drico Johnson should be listed in that group. Johnson was in Tampa recently for the BadgerSport 7on7 tournament and was one of the top receivers in attendance. Johnson, 6-foot-3, 205-pounds, has also transferred to the prestigious Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando, a move that should bring increased attention to the player. "This move is going to be great for me and I'm looking forward to playing with players of this caliber every day," Johnson stated. "I played on both sides of the football last year, but I think I'm better at wide receiver. I'm a good enough athlete to play a lot of positions really." "My strength as a receiver is my ability to attack the ball in the air," he continued. "When the ball is thrown I feel it belongs to me, and it's my job to go and get it. I'm working on my route-running, and I want to get my timing down with the quarterbacks at my new school." Although Johnson has no offers to date, his play in Tampa showed the skill set of a Division-I wide receiver, and the hope is that college recruiters will see that for themselves in spring football. "I don't have any offers yet, but I'm hearing from Notre Dame, Florida State, Georgia Tech, UCF, and a lot of other schools," he stressed. "I'm just looking for someone to give me a shot to play college football, and I wouldn't mind going far from home to do that." "Central Florida is close to offering and I like them a lot too," he continued. "Notre Dame is one of my favorite schools because of the tradition. I would say Florida State is my favorite school. I'm going to be visiting Miami in the next couple weeks to see their new coaching staff." As a junior at Agape Christian, Johnson had 59 catches for over 1,100 yards and scored 14 touchdowns.
