Dernest Johnson checks in at 5'9 and 170-pounds from Immokalee (FL) high school. Scout.com caught up with Johnson as he breaks down his game and more.
"Five things that make me a great football player is my maturity, hard work, intelligence, speed and competitive person. Five things off the field is great role model, staying humble, lifting weights, working out when no one is watching and watching my old highlights and learning from my mistakes. I want to work on my speed more, getting my legs stronger, burst and my stiff arm. My favorite thing about football is its fun. Scoring touchdowns, winning, people cheering for you and young kids wanting to be like you. I plan on visiting Florida, Georgia, USF, Vanderbilt and North Carolina pretty soon."
