Lenard Johnson is the best player on defense for Iowa State, and in my view has a great shot to be a pro. He's a freshman, who played quarterback in high school, and has made a tremendous conversion to defense and returns. He is a super young guy, and quite frankly I'm ashamed at the comments that have been made on CF. No one on here knows what happened during the game, or what comments were made or other shots taken. But I know this kid is a gem. He needs our encouragement and support, not "cheap shots" from those not on the field. If we had a team full of LJ's we be competing for the Big 12 championship. His overexuberance will be handled, but hopefully this won't break his spirit.
