Bauntae Johnson trimmed his list to 10 schools on Tuesday, and the list included Tennessee Football.
The four-star prospect, who goes by “Tae Tae,” included Tennessee on his list of schools as well as Missouri, Notre Dame, Purdue, Cincinnati, Michigan State, Penn State, Colorado, Louisville, and Miami.
Johnson was last on campus for Tennessee’s junior day at the end of January. He also took a visit on October 15 for the Vols’ upset over Alabama.
During his junior campaign, the 6-foot-3, 170-pound athlete went for 69 catches for 1081 yards and 16 touchdowns. Johnson ranks as the No. 151 prospect nationally, and the No. 11 athlete in his class.
He is also a basketball star for North Side (In.) High School. Johnson even has gained some college attention for basketball.
Johnson, who ranks as the No. 3 prospect out of Indiana, was extended a scholarship offer from Tennessee in July of last year. His most recent offer came from Deion Sanders and Colorado. Sanders recently picked up a transfer from the Vols, defensive lineman Amari McNeill.
Johnson holds one crystal ball on 247Sports predicting he will commit to Notre Dame. Allen Trieu of the same outlet projects Johnson to become a day-two draft pick.
“Good athlete who also has college basketball interest,” He writes. “Has length and fluidity to project to wide receiver or the defensive backfield in college. Does athletic tasks very easily and naturally. Changes directions smoothly as a route runner. Tracks the ball well and catches it well away from his body. Shows good feet and quickness off the line. Has some elusiveness after the catch but does not currently display elite acceleration or elite top end.
“Could be a college defensive back, but at both positions, still needs to polish his game technically and get stronger. Legitimate high-major talent on either side of the ball though and best football is likely still ahead of him.”
