Chris Johnson is from Ocala (FL) Trinity Catholic and checks in at 5-10 and 185-pounds and is a very aggressive and physical player. With a 315-pound bench it's easy to see that the strength of his game is his physical presence on the football field.
"I am a very physical when it's just me and the receiver," Johnson said.
He has great burst coming out of his cuts and is not afraid to challenge the wide receiver for position off the line and when the ball is in the air.
Four teams stand at the top as of today for the shutdown corner.
"South Carolina, Florida, Miami and LSU."
Johnson went a bit under the radar because of all the talent that was on the field during Friday Night Lights but make no mistake about it he is one of the top corners in the state of Florida for next year's class.
