After leading his team to an undefeated regular season, Dewitt junior quarterback Jake Johnson was rewarded with his first scholarship offer from Central Michigan.
"I'm just really excited," the 6-foot-2, 188-pound Johnson said. "It's a big time relief because it's a slow process and a lot of schools said that I was one of their top kids they were looking at and that they'd keep in touch, but I was still waiting for that one offer to come in, so it feels great."
Johnson has had an opportunity to get up to Mount Pleasant and see the Chippewas play, and was impressed with what he saw.
"I went up when they played Toledo and I liked it a lot. I really liked their coaching staff and Coach Enos and all of them, so it's definitely a school to look into."
Throughout the season, he has been able to visit several other programs.
"I went to Bowling Green last week, Michigan State, Michigan, and I'm going to the State game again this weekend and I'm heading down to Indiana next week."
Johnson camped at Michigan and Michigan State, and both continue to recruit him.
"I've been getting letters pretty frequently from both schools, basically a lot of what other schools are saying, that they'll keep in touch with me and I'm high on their 2015 recruiting list."
Of course, recruiting is not his focus right now, as his 9-0 squad prepares to enter the playoffs looking to make history.
"Everyone's goal is to get down to the state title because Dewitt's never won the state title so that's a big goal that we have."
