A.J. Johnson has quickly become one of the most important players on the Tennessee Volunteer defense. Though he's just a sophomore, there's a lot to know about him already, and I've got it right here.
With Curt Maggitt, Johnson got the Big Orange fanbase excited about the next three years at the linebacker position last season. Kevin Burnett and Kevin Simon are probably the last two players that had this much talent, and neither of them did it as freshmen.
The sky's the limit for Johnson. While the offense will be the story for most of the year, it will be Johnson's ability to make key stops during the big moments that could make or break the season.
