Juwan Johnson has been the talk of Penn State’ spring camp.
James Franklin said on the B1G teleconference last week that Johnson’s maturity and business-like approach stood out. Based on one of Johnson’s responses to a question, it’s not hard to see what Franklin was talking about.
Johnson was asked about his stellar spring, specifically what his favorite play was.
What was his answer? It wasn’t a miraculous one-handed grab or a catch he made in traffic. In fact, it wasn’t a catch at all.
Johnson’s favorite play was a block he made downfield to spring Trace McSorley open on a keeper.
Here was that play:

The hype for Johnson continues to grow as he enters his third season with the Lions. The sophomore-to-be is one of several options who could fill Chris Godwin’s role. The former four-star recruit certainly seems focused on becoming a complete receiver.
And by the look of it, he’s well on his way.
