Name: George Johnson III
Weight: 193 lbs.
High school: Stuart (FL) Martin
Class: Redshirt freshman
Jersey number: #22
Last year: I ranked Johnson #94 and said he would redshirt (LINK). He redshirted.
TTB Rating: 58
Johnson had a pretty quiet first year in Ann Arbor, which was fully expected. A high school quarterback, he spent the 2019 season transitioning to wide receiver. He earned Offensive Scout Team Player of the Week for the Illinois game, but otherwise, things were pretty quiet.
Now Johnson has reportedly moved to cornerback, his third position in three years. Michigan does not have a lot of depth at cornerback, but I would expect Johnson to be at or near the bottom of the depth chart. He didn’t even have spring ball to help get acclimated to the position, so players he might have surged past are probably still watching him in the rearview mirror. I expect this season to be another year of mostly standing on the sideline.
Prediction: Backup cornerback
