Offers Ryan Johnson received 8 major offers from Alabama, Clemson, Kansas State, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, and finally Tennessee. He’s been committed to Tennessee since July of 2014. Film Review Johnson’s size and power stand out on just about every play from his film. He keeps low in his stance to avoid being beaten, something that points to his high mental football IQ. You can tell from the clips above that he doesn’t quit on the play, often resulting in massive pancake blocks or flattening blows. His stance is well-formed so he can move quickly to create holes during running plays. Johnson has the talent to compete for playing time early in his career, but he will likely have to wait some time before playing large chunks of games.
