Phoenix Mountain Pointe senior cornerback Lacarea Pleasant-Johnson announced on social media the three colleges with whom he’ll focus his recruiting:

Johnson commented on each of his three finalists to azcentral sports:

On Utah: “My opportunity to get on the field early and they have great business and communications programs.”

On Florida: “That’s DB-U. There’s nothing like playing in the SEC.”

On Colorado: “Colorado has had a great history for sending their DBs to the NFL. It’s a chance to play early there, as well.”

Johnson said the plan is to commit on the early Signing Day on Dec. 19 for seniors. That early signing period runs through Dec. 21.

The regular National Signing Day is Feb. 6. That signing period goes through April 1 for Division I colleges and Aug. 1 for Division II.
