“Going 22-2 the last two years and winning back to back national championships and being a part of three national championships are great memories. I would like to thank all my professors, coaches, and advisors for all their(sic) support. Most of all I would like to thank my family, for their love and care over the years. As I venture out to my new journey in the NFL I want to acknowledge and pause and say thank you God for the talent and blessings you have given to me,” Johnson wrote in a post declaring for the draft.
