Johnny Johnson III was a beast in high school for Chandler High School, the Alma Mater of Ryan Fitzpatrick. He totaled 77 receptions for 1,274 yards and scored 8 touchdowns. He was only rated as a 3 star recruit, but he was the 11th best prospect in the State of Arizona.
Johnson III, would eventually choose Oregon and it was a great decision for the Ducks. Since Johnson has been at Oregon he has played in every game, dating back to his true freshman season. He started 10 games as a true freshman, and finished just shy of 300 receiving yards, and scored one touchdown.
As a sophomore, he finished the season with a little less production on the yardage but was seeing the end zone more. He had 215 yards and scored four touchdowns.
Last year, Johnny Johnson III blew up! He played in all 14 games hauling in tons of balls from Justin Herbert. He finished the year with 836 yards and scored 7 touchdowns. He was just one of seven players in the FBS to have 10 receptions, 200 yards and two touchdowns in a single game.
Johnson III is the number one wide out heading into 2020, and we expect a break out year from number 3!
NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes:
Johnny Johnson III is a fast player with great hands and elusiveness. When I watched a game last year against Arizona State I was blown away. Johnson tore it up for the Ducks even though they fell short in the 31-28 upset loss. There was not too much more Johnson could do to help his team that game. He was a playmaker and really shined that game. I think you will hear his name called in the 2021 NFL Draft. I would like to see him go over 1000 this year too! – Damond Talbot, Owner, Damond Talbot
