Covington DT Mickey Johnson committed this morning. News was a little bit of a shocker, and questions loom about whether or not he is accepting a full scholarship or if this is a grey shirt offer. But one thing is for certain, Johnson will be at LSU.
Johnson is a squatty, quick, powerful DT. He's definitely got good physical potential, but will need to dedicate himself to achieve his potential. Being a state powerlifting champion, the natural strength is obviously there. I do question his dedication and attitude, but he's also just a kid going up against other kids who lack his pure physical talent and the increased competition at LSU may drive him.
