On Saturday during the Gators junior day the coaches’ hosted one of the best defensive backs in the South Florida area for the Class of 2015.

That prospect was defensive back Jaquan Johnson (5-10, 172, Miami, FL Killian) who said he enjoyed the visit.

“It was a good visit,” Johnson said. “My family came up here with me and we got to see all of the facilities. I think they enjoyed the trip like I did.”

During the junior day visit to Florida, the South Florida prospect had the chance to talk about where he would fit into the Gators defense with Will Muschamp and defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin.

“They see me like a Matt Elam type of safety,” Johnson said. “Sticking and covering the slot receiver in their defense.”

Johnson visited his hometown school in Miami last weekend and he enjoyed that visit as well but not more than his one in Gainesville.

“Both of them are great facilities, the coaches are good,” Johnson said, “I like them all and really they are like even.”

Johnson has double digit offers and plenty of potential suitors. He plans to continue visiting schools and learning more about different programs but he doesn’t have any solid plans as to where he will visit next.

“I plan to visit several colleges,” Johnson said. “Right now I’m not sure who I’ll visit but when I get back home we are going to sit down and talk about it and go from there.”

Despite already taking a few visits to colleges for junior day, the South Florida safety says that he doesn’t have a leader in his recruitment as he still wants to hear from all of the coaches who have offered him.

“Nobody is at the top of the board right now,” Johnson said. “I’m giving everyone an opportunity to talk to me and recruit me and then we will see who I like the best.”
