Just a day after Florida offered 2024 four-star athlete Ju'Juan Johnson, the Lafayette Christian Academy (Louisiana) product has included the Gators in his top four.
“I’ve always liked Florida, it’s honestly the one I’ve been waiting on,” Johnson said. “It also helps that almost the entire staff is from Louisiana and Coach (Corey) Raymond is the Author of DBU with all of the DBs he’s helped develop to get to the next level. I feel like I could be his next one.”
It certainly sounds like Florida is in a good spot with Johnson, who quickly narrowed things down from a top 7 he released three weeks ago after picking up an offer from UF. Interestingly, Florida and Colorado were not part of that top 7 but were added in favor of Alabama, Penn State, Texas, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.
Although he plays quarterback for Lafayette Christian, Johnson’s athlete status and comments regarding Florida’s cornerbacks coach suggest he may move to the secondary once in college. Of course, Deion Sanders may have a similar influence on him as the new head coach of the Buffaloes. His speed and agility have teams thinking he could play receiver as well.
Johnson is ranked No. 195 overall in the class of 2024 on the On3 composite and is the No. 18 athlete in the class. He’s considered an LSU lean at this point with 94.2% odds to stay in-state, according to the service’s recruiting prediction machine.
