DRC: Johnson talks about decision to decommit from UNT

Recommended Posts

Maybe he just doesn’t want to sit behind Torrey for 2 seasons.

 

Torrey ended up tying Lance in the bowl game and he did it while getting carries only sparingly while Easly was healthy.

No doubt.  And I wish the kid well wherever he ends up.

Yessir.  Me too.
I wonder if our coaches have an offer at the ready, or have someone they'd like to flip.

These recruits on Twitter act like they just got on stage receiving a Grammy. 

It's a sign of the times.  A ton of these teens - kids born into the digital age - are really just looking to increase their social media presence.  Increase their internet brand value, if you will.

I wish him well, but am not sure where he will end up.  He had better rushing stats as a junior, was second on Manvel in rushing this year and seemed to play more on the defensive side for Manvel.  Throw a shoulder injury on top of that, and I will be curious where he will end up.  Ladarius Owens was their leading rusher and he is committed to Texas Southern.

I think Adaway will be our RB for this class and I would love to see us go after that kid from Oklahoma that hasn't garnered any offers yet.

Smith and the other guy is not enough at running back! We need another Wilson!

Easly will be back next year. We still have Torrey, Smith, and Evan Johnson. We also had that RB from UCONN transfer in and sat this season. We are fine. Would love to see Garrison Johnson, but we need to focus on guys who want to be apart of this Fl19ht Club

I believe Adaway is being recruited as a DB

The other guy is pretty damn good, Torrey.  Plus Smith, Johnson (one already on team) and hopefully Easley will be ready to go next year.  

Another Wilson would be good, but I would put some nasty offensive linemen at the top of my wish list.

Really?   That's the first I've heard that.   Do you have a link or anything?   I guess I just assumed since that's what his 24/7 profile lists him as.   But, we saw Siggers move to DB, so I guess the coaches have an eye for that.  It would not surprise me much.

I hope not. I've seen him play and he has rb good, not db hips. Too robotic for db. 

As for Johnson, in his commitment announcement he pretty much stated he's settling for UNT while waiting on something better. So, meh.

I believe that was primarily because Johnson was pulled around halftime of several blowouts.

Yeah I may have misread or heard wrong but I thought it was as a Safety.

Could be wrong though. He might be a RB regardless now.

@TheReal_jayD care to confirm?

I think he was recruiting as an athlete with the thought he might move to DB, but it is tough to ignore his stats from this year.

67 carries for 522 yards and 7 TDs.

21 receptions for 371 yards and 3 TDs. (Led team in all receiving stats)

He was their top offensive producer on a team that finished 12-1 and state runner-up.

There's some speculation in his recruiting thread that he might end up at DB, but every other indication I've seen is that he plans on being a RB.

Or that Owens was more of a break away threat and Johnson played a lot of defense.

Johnson scored more TDs even though he had fewer second half carries, so I don't think that's it.

Oh I know, but social media can also back fire on you if you’re not careful.

Get the #30 commit from Oklahoma...none one has offered this guy!  Miles Davis, RB, Lawton, OK...."the best RB in Oklahoma". He's too small for OSU and OU.....get this guy!

didn't Johnson throw out his shoulder at the end of the year? 

either way, I was more into Addaway at RB and if we're going to lose a recruit, this isn't the worst position both for us (Torrey, Easly, Smith, and hopefully UNCONN kid Hopkins, who is 6'1" 215) and in the recruiting market.

Torrey did that in basically half a season....

I feel sorry for the kid because he's letting other people influence his initial decision to commit. The staff asking him to sign early is not asking too much considering he was already committed. It sounds more like he was just using us a fallback plan from the beginning.

Either way, good luck finding the right school Garrison. I hope you find what you're looking for, but your decision to decommit may be a decision you look back on in the future and regret.
