Stuart (FL) Martin cornerback George Johnson III announced on Wednesday that he was entering the transfer portal.

Johnson was a high school dual-threat quarterback who was bound for either wide or defensive back in college. He was a 247 Composite 3-star, the #60 athlete, and #876 overall in the class of 2019. I initially gave him a TTB Rating of 73 (LINK) before eventually giving a 58 (LINK).

Johnson redshirted in 2019, did not play in any games in 2020, and played in three contests this past season, making just 1 tackle. In the off-season some Michigan receivers said he was the most difficult cornerback to shake, but that didn’t translate to the game field for whatever reason. It was always going to be tough for him to climb the depth chart at Michigan, considering the position switch and the other talent. But it didn’t help that Michigan signed a bunch of defensive backs in this 2022 class, at least a couple of whom would probably jump ahead of him pretty quickly.

Joining RB Zach Charbonnet (UCLA), OG Nolan Rumler (Kent State), LB Anthony Solomon (Arizona), WR Giles Jackson (Washington), OG Zach Carpenter (Indiana), and LB Charles Thomas (unknown), Johnson is the seventh player from the 2019 class to transfer.
