Johnson puts on a show in Oregon

Future Horned Frog Daje Johnson opened quite a few eyes yesterday at Nike's "The Opening", a skills camp for some of the elite high school football players from around in the country, being held in Beaverton, Oregon. Johnson, who like Jeremy Kerley will come to TCU from right under the nose of Mack Brown, set the all-time record in Nike's Sparq Ratings with a 146.52. I realize that number means nothing to you, as it does me, but the fact that it's the highest score ever is pretty impressive. It included a 4.33 forty, which is roughly twice as fast as you can run.

Considering his amazing athleticism, as seen in his junior year highlights, where do you see the 5'10", 185lb Johnson playing once he suits up at TCU? Running back? Receiver? Corner? Safety? Let's hear it in the comments section...

I just noticed this was already in this morning's dump. Whoops.

Ha, if he's that freaky of an athlete, let's just let him make the decision...

I wonder what my Sparq rating is?

next JKerley?

guys, he's only a rivals 3 star athlete. He can't possibly be that good. No wonder Mack didn't want him

So you're giving me enough credit to run an 8.66 40? Is that downhill?

Love the part in the full article about the fastest time at this year's NFL combine was a 4.34! Dude's faster than any NFL rookie, and he's gonna be a HS Senior!

OK, so maybe one person answered the question about where he might play, and even that one didn't directly answer.

I'd say CB - shutdown CB who will have a good share of pick 6's and who will also return kicks. But, there is so much speed and athleticism on this team there will be a line to return kicks...

Agreed, CFBMN. Also, all signs and everything I hear points to CB. He could be the next great one and looks like he has the athleticism to be one of the best we've had. So yeah, I'm setting the bar pretty high, probably because it's July and I'm so incredibly football bored.
