The unheralded Johnson is one of the toolsiest players in the Four Corners area but also one of the least refined in baseball skills. In his second year with the Aggies after transferring from Northeast Oklahoma A&M, Johnson dominated the Western Athletic Conference, leading it in batting (.382), slugging (.630), home runs (12), total bases (155) and stolen bases (29). The lefthanded hitter (and thrower) is a plus-plus runner and his arm grades as an 80 for strength if not for accuracy. If he had any chance of getting the ball near the plate Johnson would bring mid-90s heat to the mound, but he has yet to step on the mound for the Aggies. He's a contact hitter who moves the ball around the field but can also put it over the fence. Johnson will appeal to an organization looking for raw athletes more than finished baseball players, as the 5-foot-10, 180-pounder needs polish.
