Credits to Chinese58 for the find.



Tyron Johnson doing his thing!!

quote:

All of these highlights beg the question: Is Johnson really not a 5-star recruit? He MUST be close, right? How many other wide receivers hold offers from almost every school in the SEC and Big 12? One thing is certain: Whoever lands Johnson is going to get one heck of a playmaker right off the bat.


quote:

Tyron Johnson is absolutely filthy. We mean that in the best possible way.

Johnson, already ranked as a top-50 recruit by most football recruiting services, has been flat out embarrassing defenders on the spring 7-on-7 circuit. Most recently, he torched all defenses at the Pylon Football Southeastern Regional Championship, leading the Louisiana Bootleggers to the tourney title. You can see Johnson’s handiwork, which includes blazing speed, acrobatic leaping ability and hands of stickum, in the video below from the New Orleans Times-Picayune.


This is a can't miss recruit in our backyard! Hopefully Les locks him up as we need the WR depth!!

Might be a 5* in a few days. ESPN updated their rankings and he's the #1 WR.

247 has been busy with their '16 top 247, and hasn't updated the 247 '15 Composite yet.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Johnson is the biggest get in the state this year. There are lots of great players in LA (Tillery, Brossette, , Guice to name a few), but Johnson just has superstar written all over him.

If we get Johnson on board this offense can be incredible.

Hopefully, Frank's friendship with TJ's Dad pays off. It already got A$M out of the lead...

I have a good feeling about TJ. I think Harris and Cameron will be two good reasons he might come here.

As much as it did in the past, this holds no water for me.

I don't understand how he isn't a 5 star and Campbell is. Campbell is only rated #1 because of his speed/height combo. He doesn't have consistent hands and he doesn't have great route running. He's also being viewed as a safety so he should be in the athlete category.

I think the philosophy for the rankings services is to attempt to grade on potential - even potential at the NFL level.

Campbell having elite speed and height could and maybe should make him a five star because he can work on his hands and improve upon his route running while in college.

I'm not dogging him, just questioning his #1 WR label. He reminds me of Martavis Bryant who is coming out of Clemson this year for the draft. 6'4 211 who ran an unofficial 4.34 and official 4.42. Dabo even said he beat Watkins in a foot race, so yes he is really fast. Thing that hindered him and will not get him drafted high is his inconsistent hands. I see a lot of upside with Campbell, but he's more raw than the guys he's in front of.
