Rishaw Johnson
Position: G
Class:  Sr
School: Cal-Pa
HT: 6'3"
WT: 313 lbs.
40 Time: 5.15
Conference: Non-Division I
Biography: Mississippi transfer awarded all-conference honors as a senior. Dismissed from the Mississippi program after violating team rules, stemming from credit card fraud.

Positives: Large, thick offensive lineman who stands out run blocking. Strong at the point, drives defenders off the line of scrimmage and works to bury them. Stays square and anchors in pass protection. Keeps his head on a swivel and always looks for someone to hit. Better than average movement skills and blocks down well on opponents.

Negatives: Must improve his balance. Bends at the waist or ducks his head and misses blocks. Struggled to break into the starting lineup on a consistent basis at Mississippi. Has several off the field issues which has raised red flags.

Analysis: After settling in with the California (Pa.) program and concentrating on football, Johnson watched his game takeoff last season. He's a terrific run blocker and a solid athlete with upside potential. He offers size and athleticism, and Johnson can contribute at the next level if he continues to focus on football and improve his game.

Projection: 5-6
