WHAT THE TIGERS ARE GETTING

Johnson is a dynamic tight end with the ability to line up as a traditional tight end or stand up like a wide receiver. He does a great job making catches over the middle and can stretch the defense to open things up for other receivers. Johnson has a huge catch radius and presents a mismatch for defensive backs because of that size but he’s also a mismatch for linebackers because of his speed. He has a lot of room left in his frame to add significant mass so he can still be effective as a run blocker.

WHY IT’S BIG FOR LSU

The commitment of Johnson has to relieve the sting of the Arik Gilbert fiasco just a little bit for LSU fans. A physical, big-bodied receiving threat in the middle of the defense will really help the LSU offense return to its prolific form of just a few years ago. Look for LSU to continue building out this recruiting class with a few more offensive weapons.
