Mickey Plyler on Johnson: Johnson is one of the best high school passers I have seen. I watched him at Clemson's camp and the ball just comes out of his hand different than almost anyone I have seen. He has all of the arm talent you can ask for. He is also a better athlete than people think. He is a track athlete with good feet and quickness.
