Duke's 5-Star Performance
Duke Johnson (5'9/188) is a 5-Star rated back by Scout.com who is committed to Miami. Johnson helped lead his Norland team to a No. 6 ranking in the Scout Top 50 and scored five touchdowns in the State Championship Game against Wakulla.
Johnson was a triple threat for his Norland team as he did his damage against Wakulla rushing, receiving, and on special teams. He had one touchdown for every star next to his name (five).
Johnson runs bigger than his listed 5'9 and 188 pounds. He is blessed with great acceleration, balance and vision. He uses his off hand as a weapon to fend off would-be tacklers as well as any running back in the nation. He can push a defender to the ground with his hand, turn, and accelerate all in one motion. Johnson also has terrific hands, lining up at times as a wide receiver and is a threat out of the backfield.
Johnson finished his season with over 2000 yards and ran for nearly 1,300 in the playoffs.
