There's no question that Calvin Johnson is the best wide receiver in Georgia Tech history. If Georgia Tech retired jersey numbers, 21 would be plastered somewhere within the confines of Bobby Dodd Stadium in bold font.
Johnson is a once in a lifetime talent for any program, and when you get your hands on that type of ability good things happen. The Jackets never won any championships during his three-year career on the Flats, but it could have been due to mediocre play at the quarterback position from the infamous Reggie Ball.
This is one of the few players that I have seen in person with my own eyes and found it hard to believe how a human being could look so impressive. Johnson was not only one of the best in Tech history but one of the best in history period.
