Jamaal Johnson - North Augusta

Profile: Jamaal ran for 1,300 yards and 12 touchdowns as a junior in his first season with the Yellow Jackets after transferring from Midland Valley. The 6-foot, 185 pounder is looking to have an even stronger performance this season with the addition of quarterback Anthony Young. Purdue, Wake Forest, North Carolina State, South Carolina, Michigan State and Alabama have all been in contact with the Jamaal, who is the fastest player on the team with a 4.4 40-yard dash time.

Vitals: 6-0, 185;

Joe Long on Johnson: "The thing I'm really impressed about is the way he's come in with a great attitude this season. He's a runner, but he worked hard this summer and never missed a workout. This season should be his to claim if he keeps this attitude."

Johnson on Johnson: "I'm looking forward to a 2,000-yard season because they can't cover both me and Anthony. My field vision is the best thing I have going for me, but more importantly I'm hoping we do well as a team."
