Five-star running back Stafon Johnson (5-10, 200, 4.4) from Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey has lived up to every single star as a senior. He has played some quarterback and running back for the Dons. No matter where he lines up, Johnson has been a marked man, and that has made him tougher still.
Johnson missed one game this season because he suffered a major laceration against Lake Balboa (Calif.) Birmingham. He told the trainers to wrap it up and he continued to play proving that Johnson has the grit that D-I schools like to see in a prospect.
The following game the doctors made him sit out.
Johnson came back the next week for the crucial showdown against archrival Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw. He basically played the game without a thumb.
For the season, Johnson has rushed for 1,504 yards and has scored 15 rushing touchdowns. He has also returned a punt 63 yards for another score.
On defense, while only playing spot duty, Johnson has roughly 50 tackles, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries (one that he returned for a touchdown) and one interception.
"I haven't set any visits," Johnson said. "I'm going to concentrate on the playoffs."
"I will probably set visits sometime in December," Johnson said. "USC, Cal, Washington, Miami, Tennessee, Florida, Michigan and UCLA are the teams I'm looking at most."
Johnson has been selected to play in both the US Army All-American Bowl game and the CaliFla Bowl game after the season.
Johnson has been selected to the Rivals.com Rivals100 team for the class of 2006 landing as the nation's No. 12 prospect at any position.
Rivals.com rates Johnson as the country's No. 3 running back and he was selected to the Rivals.com preseason California Top 100 team ranking him the Golden State's No. 2 prospect.
