The Canadian tight end has seen his recruitment grow.

A plethora of recruits were in Ann Arbor this past weekend for Michigan’s Junior Day event. If you missed my interview with in-state receiver Devell Washington, which includes he describing the “very high chance” he and 4-star in-state receiver Rashawn Williams play in college together, click here.

One recruit who attended Michigan’s event Saturday that has seen interest in his services grow over the last few weeks is Canadian 3-star tight end Theo Johnson. The 6-foot-5, 235-pounder from Windsor, Ontario has some really good offers on the table from Michigan, Georgia, LSU, Michigan State, Penn State, Syracuse and more.

Maize n Brew caught up with Johnson after the event to see what his experience in Ann Arbor was like.

This was Johnson’s first visit to the University of Michigan since being offered by the Maize and Blue Jan. 9, and it appears he came away impressed..

“(The visit) went really well and it was super insightful,” Johnson told Maize n Brew. “I learned a lot of stuff about the program and the university that I didn’t know. One of those being how they go on team trips, which I thought was cool.”

While in Ann Arbor, Johnson got to spend a lot of time with tight ends coach Sherrone Moore, as well as head coach Jim Harbaugh. He was also able to meet new offensive coordinator Josh Gattis.

“It was good (meeting Gattis),” Johnson said. “(Gattis) said that next time I go down for a visit they will have a cut up of how they plan on using me.”

Everybody that has a Twitter account knows Gattis’ plan for “speed in space.” 247Sports has Johnson’s 40-yard dash time listed at 4.67 seconds, which is pretty good for someone his size.

Up next for Johnson is a visit to Michigan State this weekend. He said he plans on visiting Michigan again at some point, but he has not set a date for that visit just yet.
