Super 30: No. 28 Jabral Johnson, Lawton...
By Robert Przybylo
I’ve seen Lawton linebacker Jabral Johnson play twice. Frankly, that’s more than enough to realize he is a special talent.
What I’ve jotted down in previous games was his speed. He seemed to have some great speed for a linebacker. And he does, but what coach Randy Breeze talks about is his balance of speed and size.
I don’t know if his on-the-field exploits are even the best part of Johnson. He’s just a fun kid to talk to with a bubbly personality.
I wasn’t there in Tucson when the offer was made, but I bet the way he carried himself helped just as much as how hard he can hit a running back.
Johnson ended the drama early by committing to Arizona in February, and now he’s been sittin’ pretty. He loved the way the coaching staff treated him ‘like one of their own even though I wasn’t yet.’
Also, Tucson isn’t the worst place to spend your college years, and the Wildcats have been on the brink of a bust out season under Mike Stoops.
Johnson led Lawton with 109 tackles last year, even more than Sonny Puletasi (who signed with Wyoming). Johnson will be expected to carry more of a load this year, but he seems to be OK with that.
Between him, Carter Grigg, Tyrequek Zimmerman, you can’t block/contain all of them. Sure make for a fun fall for the Wolverines supporters.
