“I was a big kid from Oklahoma when Coach Riley was there. Now I’m a big USC man. They go to the Big Ten and get the top QB every year. Coach Donte (Williams) is a great coach. We watched movies for hours and they have guys like Taylor Mays and Bookie Radley-Hiles helping me recruit as well.”
According to the 247Sports Composite ranking, Johnson-Rubell is the 118th ranked recruit in the 2024 cycle, the ninth ranked safety and the 17th ranked prospect in Florida.
Here’s Andrew Ivins’ scouting report on Johnson-Rubell on 247Sports:
“A versatile defensive back who made key plays at key moments as a junior for IMG Academy, such as his pick six against St. Frances Academy. Has been deployed primarily as a security with the national powerhouse, but has some experience working as a cornerback and has shown he can be quite effective as a closing defender. Measured just under 5-foot-10, 165 pounds in the spring of 2022. Perhaps on the small side, but plays bigger than the numbers suggest, as he’s physically in the hole and comfortable doing tasks near the line of scrimmage. Looser hips allow him to mirror pass catchers of all different sizes, while foot speed (clocked a laser-timed 4.6 in the 40-yard as an underclassman) helps him close gaps and move from hash to hash. Can locate the football well on deeper shots and will work its way to the catch point on shorter routes. Should be viewed as a multi-year entry-level talent that can be deployed in a variety of ways. It will probably take some time for him to be ready to go on Saturday, but reach and instincts can lead to early playtime, especially as the body continues to mature.”
The On3 Prediction Machine lists Texas as the heavy favorite to win for the IMG Academy product. Based on an accumulation of expert picks, the Longhorns are given a 90.8% chance of winning for the talented player.
