UCLA football has picked up another four-star athlete, this time it’s Mossi Johnson, a wide-out from here in Los Angeles, and specifically Crenshaw High School.
Although Crenshaw is known for producing athletes with ghetto-ass dispositions, Mossi Johnson is an explosive dude.
Dude’s got a lot of talent and he’s been really under the radar for most of his high school career.
Before we discuss him at length, though, a video, via the YouTube:
As we can see here, Mossi Johnson looks really elusive and super shifty. He has solid footwork, it seems, and he’s got some damn speed. Based on this video, he seems to be a Steven Manfro type, but a lot bigger and much better hands.
Do the scouting reports agree, however?
To a degree, yes. The dude has a hell of a lot of versatility to go with his athleticism. he has incredible ball skills, too, and has some serious hops, allowing him to go up and compete for jump balls with anyone. His size, too, allows for this, and add the fact that he has solid hands, and you have a really solid target on offense for Noel Mazzone’s scheme. That said, for his size, his strength is largely
Johnson’s a solid athlete and he’ll be fun to watch. He seems to be a very good option and has been discussed in a defensive context, too.
Solid commit for the UCLA coaching staff.
