Johnson caught 25 passes for 352 yards and a touchdown in 2018. He was the team’s third-leading receiver with those numbers.
Penn State is already enduring quite a few losses this offseason. Not only does it lose star quarterback Trace McSorley, five players have declared for the 2019 NFL Draft, including starting running back Miles Sanders.
Though Johnson’s name is in the portal, it doesn’t necessarily mean he’s leaving Penn State. Players have the opportunity to explore other options but can also return to their institution.
