George Johnson was an original UVA commit but when things didn't work out with the Hoos, Johnson became the Scarlet Knight's gain. His athletic ability always obvious, Johnson quickly moved up the depth chart as the season progressed and began to turn heads with his play at Navy.
originally pulled the trigger in favor of UVA, but when things didn't work out with the Hoos, Johnson became the Scarlet Knight's gain. His speed from the end position has not gone unnoticed and his pop in the 3rd quarter earlier this season against Navy
, was heard all around Annapolis. It was at that point that Rutgers
Football fans realized they may have a new star in the making. Johnson, who added 4 tackles and 0.5 sacks during his opening act at Navy, will make a fearful combination with Jamaal Westermaan (who added 3 tackles including 2 sacks against Kansas State
) for the next couple of years.
Johnson talked about what the future holds for him and for the Rutgers Football team after the conclusion of the Rutgers/Kansas State game.
