When talk of TCU wide receivers come up, the conversation usually starts with Jimmy Young, who is climbing the team charts for career receptions and yards, then to the explosive Jeremy Kerley and even big-play threat Antoine Hicks.
Against Oregon State, Johnson had three catches for 26 yards, including a nifty grab he made while twisting and practically picking the low throw off the turf. He and quarterback Andy Dalton clearly have gained a keen sense for one another.
"I definitely believe that," Johnson said. "As far as me and every other receiver, we've been here for five years. We've been doing a seven-on-seven in the summers for five years. We've been running a lot of the same plays for five years. It's just really neat. I know the other night when we were on the field, it's just like a sense of confidence, a kind of calmness about the group."
