    Johnson is an interesting case. He ranked No. 173 on BA's predraft Top 200 Prospects as a high schooler in 2007, and his scouting report reads almost exactly as it did four years ago. He battles in every start and has been masterful as the Heels' Friday starter this season, going 11-1, 2.56 heading into regionals, with 102 strikeouts and 28 walks in 91 innings. He is a savvy pitcher with a quick arm, but his stuff hasn't gotten any harder in college. His fastball sits 88-90 mph, touching 92, and he shows good feel for a curveball and changeup, but none of his pitches is overpowering.
