One of the quickest receivers in this year's class, Johnson is explosive as a receiver and return man. He caught 66 balls for 1,140 yards (17.3 per) and nine touchdowns and averaged 10.9 on 43 punts returns (with two scores) in his two seasons. He couldn't crack the All-SWAC teams, but Johnson will have a great chance at achieving two other goals: being an NFL draft pick and making a NFL roster.
Was named all-state, all-area and all-conference as a senior in high school … had 50 catches, 896 yards and 20 touchdowns in 8 games as a senior.
