Johnson was the 2021 Sun Belt Conference freshman of the year after rushing for 776 yards and 11 scores with the Ragin’ Cajuns.
Johnson was the No. 60 ranked RB in the 2021 cycle coming out of New Orleans. A 5’10, 184 lb back that proved to be explosive in the open field in Napier’s offense.
Johnson is the third transfer taken by Florida since Napier’s arrival (QB Jack Miller, Ohio State and OL Kamryn Waites, ULL). Additionally, Johnson is the second addition in the backfield this week as 4-star prospect Trevor Etienne committed to UF on Saturday.
