Kerryon Johnson is a 4-star athlete who deserves to be considered a 5-star recruit. The Alabama native plays for Madison Academy, where he makes his presence felt as a running back and safety.
At 6'0" and 200 pounds, Johnson has exceptional instincts and awareness. With his natural feel for the game, Johnson is a confident player who works with a lot of poise. He also has excellent quickness and strength at both of his top positions.
Auburn's recruiting class will be headlined by Johnson, who will surely attract several other elite recruits. A 5-star quarterback from Florida may join him, while a 5-star defensive tackle could also end up on The Plains.
