Three-star wide receiver Garrett Johnson committed to Kentucky on Saturday.

Johnson, who attends high school in Winter Garden, Fla., visited UK’s campus for last weekend’s Friday Night Blue Lights camp.

Arizona, Boston College and South Florida were the other schools at the top of Johnson’s list.

ESPN ranks the 5-foot-9, 160-pound prospect as the No. 59 wide receiver in the class of 2014. Rivals.com considers him the No. 98 overall senior from the state of Florida.

Johnson — who ran a 4.47-second 40-yard dash at a Florida State camp last month — caught 49 passes for 685 yards and seven touchdowns last season while splitting time between receiver and cornerback. He had 10 touchdowns and more than 1,000 yards receiving as a sophomore.

Johnson is UK’s 21st commitment from the class of 2014 and joins Thaddeus Snodgrass and T.V. Williams as the third wide receiver in the group. The UK coaching staff is still targeting several players at the position, including Blake Bone, Braxton Berrios, Josh Malone, Dorian Baker, Moral Stephens, Kendrick Holland and others.
