    Johnson's season was marked by inconsistency. His velocity fluctuated from 88-92 mph to the mid-80s, and both his breaking ball and slider would come and go in the same fashion. He helped himself by finishing on a high note in the Oklahoma 6-A championship game, throwing 91 mph and beating Weeden's team with a complete-game five-hitter. (Weeden didn't pitch but did homer for Santa Fe's lone run.) With Johnson's 6-foot-7, 215-pound frame, it's easy to project him throwing in the mid-90s down the road. If he doesn't sign, he'll join his brother Tyler, an outfielder at Oklahoma.
