BEFORE LOUISVILLE
Michael Johnson continues a long tradition of Florida athletes choosing Louisville for their collegiate careers. Johnson is one of five players from this class to sign at Louisville from the state of Florida. Johnson is former teammates with current U of L freshman safety Chucky Williams and knows several other players from south Florida on the roster. According to 247sports, Johnson, who played for head coach Mike Tunsil, is the No. 34 defensive back in the nation and No. 52 player in the state of Florida. A three-star prospect by Scout.com, Johnson is rated as the No. 83 top prospect at his position. Johnson, a member of the Top Florida 100, led his team to help knock off Lakeland (Fla.) Victory Christian 14-7 in the Florida Class 2-A state title game at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando. He helped the Champagnat defense hold Victory Christian to just 193 total yards. Champagnat jumped to a 14-0 lead and then held on as Victory charged in the end. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Johnson helped the Lions to a 14-0 record and the school's first state title. A two-way performer, Johnson finished his junior season with 99 tackles, seven forced fumbles, and one interception, while recording 10 catches on offense. Johnson had big-time offers before choosing the Cardinals. He picked up scholarship offers from LSU, Nebraska, Pittsburgh, Central Florida, and West Virginia. He is the son of Lekeisha Johnson.
