    This kid's being shredded by the "won't accept mediocrity" crowd on the message boards. The same guys who do zero evaluation of their own, or research, for that matter, and look only at offer lists and star ratings. These same guys are the ones who ***** and moan when the "crappy" recruit takes a last minute factory offer and leaves us at the alter.

    They are never happy. Nothing will change the opinion they have.

    Johnson had almost 60 catches for 900 yards and 14 Tds last year...while having 88 tackles on D and 5 INTs.

    If the staff is willing to take someone this early it's someone we should be excited about...Johnson has great size and moves well. Nothing wrong with him at all. Good prospect.

    Kid was a good steal. Wouldn't be surprised to see him get a few more offers at least.

    Super excited two big physical safeties that have speed and can hit. Pelton hand picked this recruit for a reason, this is the type of recruiting I love .. No offense to the little guys but I want Bigger, Faster, Stronger athletes accross the board.

    This is highlighted the Saturday after Thanksgiving. If a DB can't jam Gurly or Marshall and not let them fall forward another 3 yards we don't need them. 6'3" and an eventual 215lbs of muscle with a running start should be just the recipe to make that happen

    UGA and to some extinct BYU manhandled GT last year. Gurley rested the third quarter, Godhigh gettin tossed like a rag doll. Disgusting. I don't care what these guys say size matters same with speed.

    This is one reason that I don't even browse most of the fan boards anymore. Too many guys looking for an outlet to complain about why life isn't what they thought it would be.
