Johnny Carlson, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound, quarterback, from Minnetonka (Minn.) Hopkins is a terrific quarterback prospect and athlete.
Carlson has given the Minnesota Golden Gophers his verbal commitment and Glen Mason has to be tickled to death knowing that Carlson could be running his offense in a couple of years.
Carlson has an above average arm and his accuracy is uncanny. He shows great touch on his deep ball and his footwork and play action is exceptional.
Carlson has been timed at 4.5 in the 40-yard dash and he looks quick as a cat on film.
Hopkins runs mostly a shotgun offense and Johnny Carlson runs it too perfection. He can throw on the run, he can throw against his body and he sets and gets himself in a good throwing position before delivering strikes down field.
Johnny Carlson is an athlete that makes everyone around him better. He's a 3-star quarterback that Gophers fans will get to know very well in the near future.
