Quick Note on JD Johnson

I spoke this past weekend with a source with close knowledge as to Michigan’s thinking. I was told then about Phoenix (AZ) Pinnacle QB JD Johnson, who was on campus for an unofficial visit.

That source told me that Michigan believed Johnson to be “criminally underrated” and that it fully expects him to be an Elite 11 quarterback once reevaluations from the scouting websites take place. Of course, Johnson hasn’t seen much playing time at the high school level, playing behind Oklahoma QB signee Spencer Rattler.

While Michigan wanted him to be a part of the class, I am a little surprised that the commitment came so quickly. The belief was that the staff was going to continue to keep Johnson’s name quiet, since they saw him as being so off-the-radar.

That said, given what I’ve been told the staff thinks of Johnson, they have to be thrilled. While Harrison Bailey was the top target at the position in the 2020 class, it seems that Johnson was close behind him on Michigan’s board based off what I’ve been hearing.
