After attending a one-day camp with the University of Miami in Coral Gables last weekend, Jesuit senior receiver/defensive back Travis Johnson announced on his Twitter account he is making a verbal commitment to the Hurricanes.

The 6-foot-3, 231-pound Johnson tweeted “Truly Blessed To Say I Have Committed To Play Football At The University Of Miami!”

Tigers head coach James Harrel and assistant coach Brian McNulty both confirmed Tuesday that Johnson made the commitment to Miami.

Last fall, Johnson had a team-high 48 receptions for 653 yards and four touchdowns. He also led the Tigers in interceptions with seven.

Despite a cloud of uncertainty looming over the Hurricanes’ football program due to possible NCAA violations that came under the watch of the previous coaching staff, Miami has done well with some of the top recruits in Tampa. Last season, Hillsborough defensive lineman Earl Moore and Jefferson linebacker Tyriq McCord signed with “The U.” Moore also made his commitment to “The U” after attending a Hurricanes camp last summer.
