Johnson played in 10 games as a reserve and on special teams (two tackles, one interception, one pass breakup) as a freshman. He started once in 13 appearances in 2019 but was quite productive for the Hoosiers, posting 25 tackles, 4.5 for loss, with three sacks, two interceptions (one returned for a score) and two pass breakups. When senior safety Marcelino Ball suffered an ACL tear before the 2020 season, Johnson had to step up his game. He did, tying for the team lead with four interceptions, breaking up four other passes and posting 43 tackles (3.5 for loss with one sack) in eight starts to garner second-team All-Big Ten honors from league coaches. He was ejected in the first quarter versus Michigan for throwing a punch at an opposing player. -- by Chad Reuter
