No. 3 Ty Johnson makes it look easy on a screen pass
Stop if you’ve heard this before: Ty Johnson broke off a long touchdown run.
Johnson already made an appearance at No. 5 with his rush against Indiana. With that being said, he’s just as dangerous in the screen game.
On Oct. 8 against Penn State, Maryland found themselves trailing the Nittany Lions 7-0 in the first quarter.
Hills dropped back to pass and was facing a heavy blitz from Penn State. He was able to flip a screen pass out to Johnson, who nearly had to make a one-handed grab to secure the catch.
Johnson then turned on the jets and flew down the sideline for a 66-yard touchdown. He was aided by some phenomenal downfield blocking from center Brendan Moore.
As was mentioned a few slides back, Johnson is as explosive a back as you’ll see in the Big Ten. He is a threat to score any time the football is in his hands.
The Terps have another two years with Johnson in the fold and he’ll be a big part of the gameplan against Boston College in the Quick Lane Bowl on Dec. 26.
