Two weeks before the start of his junior season, Jesuit WR Travis Johnson has compiled an early top-10 list of college favorites, and Miami -- yes, the beleaguered 'Canes -- could make it on there eventually.

"I believe actually we're really close to getting an offer from them, so that's why I haven't had them in my top 10," Johnson said Wednesday. "But we're close."

For now, Johnson's top 10 (in no particular order) are: Ohio State, Cincinnati, LSU, Oklahoma State, Florida, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Notre Dame, Michigan State and USC.

He said once he gets an offer from UM, he'll strongly consider the 'Canes despite an incarcerated 'Canes booster's claims -- detailed in an extensive Yahoo! report -- he provided illegal benefits to dozens of UM players and recruits for nearly a decade.

"I mean, they're a top-notch program but we'll have to see the outcome of all this and make a decision from there," Johnson said.
