Johnson will also likely see time on the special teams unit.
Stephenson High assistant coach Corey Johnson talked about Jabari and his skills.
"With Jabari, you have a nice fluid linebacker. I think he'll do well at Kentucky," said Johnson. "Jabari needs to work on his lower body. He's a gifted athlete, but he needs to work on bulking up and adding strength," continued the coach.
Jabari Johnson on himself:
"I'm a very physical linebacker," said Johnson. "I'm very good at stopping the run. I'm relentless. I'm not afraid to get physical and tackle. I feel comfortable with my tackling and I believe I'm the best tackler on my team," Johnson finished.
