Chris’ Take

At 5-foot-10, 180-pounds, Johnson appears to be a guy who could blend in well with the 2010 Cyclones. He’s obviously been targeted to play for Tom Herman’s spread style of offense. To me, this appears to be a positive trade for Iowa State after learning about Jeremiah Schwartz’s departure from the team last week.

Take a look at Johnson’s highlight video up above. He appears to have good field vision and just looks like a slippery running back. He’ll be tough to see behind a division one line. Another thing that impresses me about that video is that it is all from one game, not just a bunch of wild highlights thrown together.

Johnson is the second running back to commit to Iowa State in the class of 2010. He joins Texas prospect Duran Hollis.
