Johnson put up some mind boggling numbers in high school, not just as a running back but as a hurdler, too. Regardless of what happens at Michigan, he will long be remembered in track and football circles for his high school exploits.
Those accomplishments don't necessarily translate to college, though. Johnson racked up big numbers running the ball, but the consensus seems to be that he doesn't have much wiggle and will struggle to find creases in Michigan Stadium. Johnson has good speed and a big frame, and he plans to be 220-225 lbs. by the time he becomes an upperclassman. Hopefully he can parlay those qualities into being a good college running back. With the backfield pretty set, Johnson's best chance to get on the field this fall would appear to be as a kick returner; his speed and power could be a nice combination. However, with another player (Dennis Norfleet) having been brought in for the express purpose of returning punts and kickoffs, Johnson might find his pathway to playing time blocked there, too.
