Name: Sharod Johnson
Position: Wide Receiver
Year: (Redshirt) Junior
Hometown: Miami, Fla.
High School: Booker T. Washington
2019 stats: Johnson appeared in four games, making one catch against Holy Cross.
2020 projections: There is an incredibly crowded field for receivers this season, and Johnson’s move inside will probably help, as that position is less solidified. However, it’s more than likely unless he really shows off in camp, special teams will be the way to field.
How’d he get here?: Interest and offers from Illinois, Purdue, Temple, App State and others weren’t going to sway him from coming north with the other reverse snowbirds.
What’d recruiting sites say?: Three stars, all day, every day.
Money quote: Johnson formed a bond with another Miami to ‘Cuse product, former standout Steve Ishmael.
“Me and Steve Ishmael, we were very close, very close,” Johnson said. “He helped me. He guided me. I looked up to him in the offense. I learned from him and I learned from his mistakes. Steve Ishmael was a big role model.”

What movie would Dino recommend for him?: We’re going to go real niche with Kingmakers, the 2015 murder mystery and first time tailor opportunity for Sharod T. Woods, who would go on to work on Black Panther and Ant-Man & The Wasp.
Interesting nugget o’interest: Though Johnson graduated from Booker T. Washington, he previously attended Miami Jackson High School. Among the most notable alums from there is Bob Vila, long-time host of the show “This Old House.”
