Who is Jeremiah Johnson?
Jeremiah Johnson is a four-star wide receiver out of Clinch County High School in Homerville, Georgia. The newest Florida commit is one of the biggest recruits in the 2020 recruiting cycle. Johnson has also received some solid offers especially from SEC programs. Johnson has 12 offers from top football programs like Auburn, Florida, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Nebraska, South Carolina and Tennessee. The Peach State wide out is also one of the most highly rated receivers in a loaded 2020 receiver class. On ESPN, Johnson is the 212th ranked recruit and the 40th ranked wide receiver in the country. On the 247 Sport Composite Rankings, Johnson is the 359th ranked recruit and 68th ranked wide out in the country.
Jeremiah Johnson is a 6’7” 215 pound wide receiver. Just looking at his size, you know that Johnson is going to be a red zone threat at the next level. He has huge frame and still has tons of room to grow once he’s on campus. Jeremiah Johnson looks to be a future tight end at the next level once he hits the weight room hard. Florida would most likely spread out Johnson just like they do with Kyle Pitts. He’s a bit of a project but Mullen and Florida’s coaching staff can really turn him into a huge playmaker. This is a very nice get for Dan Mullen and the Florida Gators offense.
