The Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian safety, Terry Johnson, prefers to play in the Pac-12...

Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian safety Terry Johnson is anxious to land his first offer.

The 6-0, 175-pounder has been hearing from a number of Pac-12 schools, though and thinks that first offer could be just around the corner.

“I just recently heard from Oregon, and they’ve been sending a whole bunch of letters, and asking for my transcripts,” said Johnson. “Colorado, Arizona State and UCLA are also sending me a bunch of letters. I’m going to Arizona State for spring practice and I’m going to get up to Oregon and I’m going to get out to UCLA too.”

Johnson has lengthy ties with Colorado, where his father, Terry Sr., was a linebacker with the Buffs during the 1989 and 1990 seasons, when Colorado went to consecutive Orange Bowls and won the 1990 national title.

“My dad played with Coach (Eric) Bieniemy and Coach (Brian) Cabral and Coach (Kanahvis) Mcghee and also Coach (Jon) Embree,” said Johnson. “So I’ve got a lot of ties there. I went to their camp last summer and worked quite a bit with Coach (Greg) Brown and the defensive backs.”

With ties to the Pac-12, and living on the West Coast, Johnson’s hope is to stay out that way.

“My goal is to stay in the Pac-12,” said Johnson.

An offer from Colorado would make him that much more interested in his father’s alma mater, and Johnson said that Oregon stands as a school he’d like an offer from.

Johnson said that he wants to get up to 185 by the time the season starts and wants to be at 190 by the time he starts college.

Academically, he’s planning to take the SAT and ACT this spring.

Brandon is in his eighth year with and FOXSportsNext, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
