Johnson also had offers from Arkansas State, Memphis and Mississippi State.
Committed to Ole Miss on Jan. 29, 2012.
Possible playing time in 2013: Johnson, like the rest of the 2013 linemen aside from Laremy Tunsil, is buried in the depth chart. The Rebels return four of five starters including both tackles and have a multitude of depth behind them. He is a talented prospect but let me put it this way: if Johnson plays in 2013, there is a lot to be concerned about in Oxford.
Wrap-up: He has the ideal size for an offensive lineman in the SEC, he’s tall, strong and wide. His work will be cut out for him due to the signings of Tunsil and Austin Golson, so a switch to a guard spot may be imminent. With athleticism like he does, he can play at any spot on the line with some time. He will not be needed in 2013 or likely in 2014, so he will have time to develop which is necessary because he is currently a project.
