SAN ANTONIO, Texas - East head coach Lance Pogue breaks down the three Mississippi players…
USAAAB: C.J. Johnson
C.J. Johnson profile "I am having a lot of fun," said Johnson. "Just hanging out and getting to talk to some of the guys has been real good. It's good to able to see another side of them that is not just about football." C.J. is getting more than his fair share of snaps during the East practices, but he has not heard if he will lead the defensive unit on to the field on Saturday just yet. "Coach says we aren't really going to have a set rotation, but we're all getting reps," said Johnson. "Some times guys get a little lazy at practice and they aren't taking their reps, but I am in there." The talent level in San Antonio has been impressive and C.J. is quick to give credit to all who made the trip. "Everybody has done good," said Johnson. "Pretty much everybody is making plays. It's a real battle for spots, because everybody is sort of on the same level as far as talent goes." C.J., a Mississippi State commitment, and fellow linebacker Kris Frost have shared some good natured ribbing about this past weekend's Gator Bowl where the Bulldogs got the better of Michigan 52-14. "We talked a little bit about the game on Saturday," said Johnson. "He has been talking a lot about Coach Rodriguez leaving and me I am just the same old me. I am not having to worry about all of that." C.J. and wide outs Tobias Singleton and Nickolas Brassell have all made an impact on the practice field this week. "I feel like Mississippi has been well represented out here," said Johnson. "Nick has come out and made a lot of plays and Tobias is really starting to come on too. "I feel like we're all doing a good job."
