Ok, so I'm doing a little bit of borrowing from another forum site, but this really got me excited to see TJ in a UA uniform. And I don't know if these are official, because I'm not doing the digging, but someone from another site posted these times comparing TJ's speed to De'Anthony Thomas' (DAT):
Top 200M times (non wind aided):
Top 100M times:
Top 60M times:
DAT- no recrods
TJ- 7.07 (best in FL, .07 away from tops in nation)
Top 40 yard dash times:
DAT- 4.29 (not official)
I'm sure saying that TJ's going to be the second coming of DAT will be an unfair comparison, but just imagine someone like DAT lining up in the same backfield as Consensus All-American Ka'Deem.
EDIT: On second thought, you don't have to because Oregon's Kenyon Barner was the other Consensus All-American RB. SO... yeah...

Welcome T.J. Looking forward to seeing what you can do!
Work Ethic and Desire are the two things that matter most.
Look at our history and you will find some very special people who did not measure up in size or speed, etc...
They were some of our best players because of the heart they put into it.
Again, WELCOME TJ!
And just to pump up this kid even more, here's what ESPN had to say about him:
Johnson is a dynamic football player who lines up as a receiver, tailback and safety and is capable of scoring from any spot on the field. He has the athleticism for all positions at the BCS level of play, but lacks the size we look for when evaluating safeties. He displays good awareness and ball skills playing deep zone coverage. He has returned a punt for a touchdown, which suggests special teams potential. Regardless of his size, he is tough enough to take the ball inside. He has good vision and shows the ability to locate and get into creases quickly. He can make defenders miss in the hole and at the second level with his excellent lateral quickness and restart ability. He displays good awareness with a feel for defenders when in traffic and shows a strong, tough over the pads finishing effort when caught in traffic. He has the burst and second gear needed to take the ball to the house once in the open field. He is very effective running the inside counter play or toss sweep, demonstrating the speed to get to the corner with outstanding plant and cut ability. We like his patience and ability setting up blocks when in space. He is effective running drag, seam and swing routes and works his way into open areas while demonstrating the toughness to compete for the contested throw. His hands appear natural and relaxed and he shows the ability to jump and adjust to the high, out of the frame throw. Johnson is an all-purpose utility player capable of breaking a game wide open with his explosiveness. Johnson's touches must be managed, but he has the potential to make a difference very early in his career from a variety of alignments.
Rich Rod is going to transform our track 'n field team sprinting with his recruiting.
Sounds like an awesome addition to this class!
