The Louisiana native finished second on the Jaguars defense in total tackles with 55; what is more impressive is 43 of those were all by his lonesome. Johnson nabbed 3 interceptions this year and racked up 118 yard in total yardage once he had the pigskin in his hands and returned two of those interceptions to the house for touchdowns.

The 5’10” Senior bothered opponent receivers getting in their way for 12 pass break-ups and a total of 15 passes defended this past season. Johnson was an intrical part of Southern University’s 7 wins and 4 losses this season; number one also returned punts and kick offs for coach Dawson Odums Jags. He made a trip to the house on one of his 13 punt returns averaging 17.1 yards per return for a total of 222 yards. He led the Jags in Kickoff return yardage with a total of 326 yards on 15 returns averaging 21.7 yards a return. So it was safe to say there was no need for the young speedster to take a knee on kickoff returns if he found himself in the endzone.
