Johnson spoke about why he transferred to TCU, and what he gained from the experience.

“So my biggest thing moving was to learn. I knew Coach P was a great defensive mind. I wanted to move somewhere I could learn. My football IQ was not as good, but now I can say I really got a better understanding of football. That was the purpose of this – to get exposure and to learn the game even more.”
