Johnson came to North Carolina from Rocky Mount (N.C.) High, where he was prep teammates with fellow Tar Heel Benton Moss and Nationals outfielder Brian Goodwin, who played one season in Chapel Hill before transferring to junior college. Johnson doesn't have the same tools as those guys and is just 5-foot-11, 210 pounds, but he has a strong track record pitching on one of the best college staffs in the country. He was 4-0, 2.18 with 58 strikeouts and no home runs allowed through the regular season. His fastball ranges from 86-92 mph and he can sit 90-91 at times. He also throws a good changeup, average slider and fringy curveball. He'll need to tighten up his command and had walked 38 in 66 innings this spring.
