Thousands of student-athletes have reached the transfer portal this off-season, but only a few of them will be considered the most influential in the class once the season is over. The guys at On3 are ranking the top 10 transfers in each position this year, and Florida’s Montreal Johnson running back comes in at No. 7 on the list.
This makes Johnson on the list to watch. He is moving to Florida in a favorable position and has been following his head coach since last year. The Gators lost both of their top two running backs in the final, so Johnson is going to be Billy Napier’s go-to person if familiarity is something he leans on. He ended 2021 with more yards and touchdowns than the combined career totals of the rest of the running back.
Montreal Johnson ran for 838 yards and a team-leading 12 TDs to earn Sun Belt Conference Freshman of the Year honors last season. He shared time with Ragini Cajun (Louisiana had three rushers with at least 600 yards in 2021) and would do so again with Florida… Asha Johnson, Ne’Quan Wright and holdover Lorenzo Lingard, a former five The star prospect who began his career in Miami may team up with QB Anthony Richardson to give the Gators a mighty fast attack.
Two more SEC newcomers made the list ahead of Johnson. Ole Miss’ Zach Evans, who moved from TCU, is No. 3, and Alabama’s Jahmir Gibbs, who moved from Georgia Tech, is No. 1. It will be interesting to see where these three backs end up after the season ends. , Many people expect Johnson to break down and move on in some places.
