Minnesota Football Recruiting: TaMarion Johnson Commits To Gophers

Minnesota adds a long and quick pass rusher to the class of 2016.

Vitals:

Name: TaMarion Johnson
Position: Defensive end
Hometown/School: Southfield, MI (Bradford Academy)
Profile: 247Sports Profile
Rating: - 0.8215 Composite Score

How he fits:

TaMarion brings speed, length, and explosiveness to the pass rush. He was originally a wide receiver prospect, but he worked out as a defensive end in summer camps before his senior year (where he had 14 sacks). He's raw and will need to work hard in the weight room and on his technique, but he has the size and burst to make a difference if he continues to improve.
