PLAYER: Jaykus Johnson
SCHOOL: Miramar Everglades
SCOUTING: Two years ago, as a freshman, this is one of those young men who made the first impression with a tremendous season – one that had plenty of people talking. A year in which he sparked this program with an amazing year, and a future that teammates, coaches and opposing players began to respect. Last year saw this talented young man suffer a knee injury – and while some of that attention seemed to fade – his return this year has once again uncovered a running back who has worked hard to put himself in the spotlight. Johnson is a different runner than he was as a freshman, and as college coaches will have a chance to watch him, that is a good thing. He still runs hard and is trying to get that top end speed back, but with over a year left in his high school career, you can guarantee that if he stays healthy, he will be right back in that recruiting mix. Keep your eye on this young man.
