Johnson may not have a present average tool, but he could develop into a catcher with solid tools across the board. The 6-foot-1, 180-pounder has a nice lefthanded swing, and while he needs more strength, he did homer into the right-field seats at Busch Stadium when Galesburg played there in April. His slightly below-average arm strength plays up because of his quick release and he shows the aptitude to become a good receiver. The Illinois State recruit is considered one of Illinois' more signable high school prospects, and crosscheckers were coming to see him late in the spring.
