Three days after publicly whittling his choice of colleges to 10, Jesuit rising senior WR Travis Johnson has narrowed a bit further.
Johnson confirmed on his Twitter account Monday evening that he has committed to Miami, his boyhood favorite college. He attended a one-day camp in Coral Gables over the weekend.
"Truly Blessed To Say I Have Committed To Play Football At The University Of Miami!" Johnson tweeted.
A 6-foot-3, 241-pound football-basketball standout, Johnson is No. 77 on the ESPN150 list. He had 48 catches and a team-best seven interceptions as a safety last season, and enters his senior year with 107 total receptions, 1,574 yards and 14 TDs.
On Friday, he told the Times that Miami was among the final 10 colleges he was considering. He projects as a tight end/slot receiver for the Hurricanes and becomes the third tight end prospect to commit to UM, joining St. Petersburg's Jeremy Kerr and New Orleans' Standish Dobard.
It was a tough decision," Jesuit coach James Harrell said. "He liked USF a lot; it was close to home. I guess football-wise, he figured it afforded him an opportunity to play in the ACC and be a part of the tradition of Miami."
