Only Austin Johnson Until Penn State Football

Tony Mancuso/gopsusports.com

Redshirt Freshman Austin Johnson came to PSU a versatile 3-star offensive line prospect with only a handful of other BCS offers. He's since switched to the defensive line, as what LJ Sr wants, LJ Sr gets.

Johnson's on the short list to see significant playing time at the nose tackle position this fall, one of a few youngsters vying to fill the void that rookie Seattle Seahawk DT Jordan Hill has left. He had a good spring and great spring game, notching two sacks.

Hailing from New Jersey, Johnson also played basketball in high school, leading his team to a state title. He hails from the same high school as former Nittany Lion and current Raider Jack Crawford.
