Johnson showed great promise when he caught 39 passes as a true freshmen in 2009 -- including the first touchdown of Steve Sarkisian's tenure against LSU. That proved to be a career high as injuries derailed two of his past three seasons. In total, he played in 30 games at the UW, catching 68 passes for 791 yards and seven touchdowns.
Johnson, who would have been a fifth-year senior this fall, will remain on athletic scholarship until he completes his degree.
Washington is fairly solid at receiver. It's top-six pass catchers from 2012 are returning this fall, though tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is presently suspended due to a DUI arrest and two of those six were tailbacks.
In fact, the Huskies needed some roster attrition to fall under the 85 scholarship limit this fall, so these sorts of moves were expected.
