How good is Johnson?
''Here at Tennessee I think we have as good a group of receivers as we've had,'' Vol defensive coordinator John Chavis said this week. ''But he could fit in here and start without a problem.''
Since three freshmen, two redshirt freshmen and three sophomores rank among Tennessee's top 12 defensive backs, the youthful Vol secondary could be in for a long night trying to contain Johnson in Sunday night's opener. The good news, though, is that UT should be able to double-team Johnson since he doesn't have much experience around him.
''They're young at the other receiver positions,'' Chavis said. ''There's not a lot of guys you're going to see on (last season's) tape. But Johnson is a guy who could play anywhere in the country.''
