Arizona Football: Incoming WR Tyrese Johnson is the real deal

In a nationally televised game on Thursday evening, Arizona Football commit Tyrese Johnson showcased his talent for all to see.

For fans that are looking for any sort of positivity regarding Arizona Football, look no further than current wide receiver commit, Tyrese Johnson.

If you may recall, Tyrese is the three-star wide receiver that hails from New Orleans, LA, and is arguably one of Arizona’s better commits. That shouldn’t be hard to see either, especially as he holds offers from Arkansas, Florida State, Houston, Miami, Tennessee and Mississippi State among others.

Well, in case you needed any more proof of just how good Johnson is, he certainly showcased his talent to a nationally televised audience on Thursday evening.

Playing with KIPP Booker T. Washington High School, Johnson and his school took on Newman High School, which is led by Arch Manning (the nephew to former NFL QB’s Peyton and Eli) and future football star.

In a high scoring game with two New Orleans area high schools, it was Arch and Newman High School that arguably stole the show in their 55-22 win. However, what shouldn’t be lost in this one was the tremendous performance by Tyrese.

Standing an impressive 6-feet-1-inch and 190 pounds, he was a dominant force on Thursday evening, using his size, speed and athleticism to find the endzone, and make multiple big plays against Newman.

Normally lining up at receiver, Tyrese also got a few opportunities to play quarterback on Thursday evening, showing his versatility as an athlete. And without question Tyrese is a very good athlete, he provides the sort of fight and football ability that the Wildcats desperately need.

Here is a play in which Tyrese scampered for 41 yards, cutting and weaving through the defense, eventually scoring.

He even had a play in which he ‘Mossed’ his opponent. Meaning he caught the pass over someone’s head, much like former NFL receiver Randy Moss seemed to do.

The kid clearly has the talent and these are perhaps the types of plays we can expect from him in the future too!

At Zona Zealots, we can’t wait to see Tyrese suit up with the Wildcats! He’s truly a special football player. As always, Bear Down, Arizona!
