When De’Joshua Johnson committed to Florida State back in the class of 2010, many thought he could be the next big Seminoles WR target. Fast forward two years later the Seminoles are finally back in the ACC Championship but you won’t find De’Joshua Johnson roaming the sidelines.
De’Joshua has found himself a new home in New Mexico at New Mexico Highlands University where he says “I’m keeping a low profile at a D-2.”
As for his relationship with Florida State the 5’10 158 lbs. WR originally from Pahokee (FL) says “The coaches call me every week, to make sure I’m good.” When asked if there was an opportunity he could end up back in Tallahassee Johnson responded “There’s no need really, I’m already on the draft board.”
As for his current standing on draft boards Johnson says he’s rated as the #44 WR and #3 kick return specialist. You will not find Johnson’s name in this years draft however as he says “I need my degree, I’m too close to it.”
Johnson is awaiting the Cowboys junior days where he says all 32 NFL teams will be present, this year Johnson caught 40 balls for 543 yards and 7 TD’s, he also returned 2 punts for TD’s and 1 kickoff return of which he took back for a score. All in all Johnson accumulated 1,023 all purpose yards.
One guy Johnson told us to watch at New Mexico Highlands is Louisville transfer Shenard Holton, of which he says “He’s a FS, 3 year starter since he was a true freshmen.”
