Gamecock DL Tyreek Johnson, where has he been? June 12, 2019 He is a player that fans really have put on the back burner, Because of an injury prone start to his college career. He is well worthy now to bring up and have a discussion about his future with Carolina To start let's say this, to begin with. He’s not a shiny new freshman. In fact, he finished up high school two years ago. A knee injury cost him the 2018 season, add in the shoulder injury that delayed his enrollment, Tyreek was a productive prospect and had some big potential. Even while not playing, he’s showed the USC staff a little something. “We were really excited about him,” Will Muschamp said this spring. “Unfortunately in a non-contact situation with the ACL, but he’s rehabbed extremely well off of it. He’s got his weight back up. He’s about up to 260, 265, 270 range. We are really excited about him.” That ACL tore early in spring practice of 2018. It kept him out all season, and the hangover from it limited him early in this year’s spring ball. At that size, the athletic Sumter product will stay at defensive tackle, where he moved soon after enrolling. He finished high school in 2017, following a season in which he posted 72 tackles, 22 for loss, with five sacks and six blocked kicks. After high school, a shoulder ailment forced a grayshirt, and the setback with his knee came only a few months after he arrived. He spent the 2017 fall semester at home, working out and staying big. When he returns to full action, he’ll have to contend with a rather loaded position group. USC has back its top four tacklers from last year: Javon Kinlaw, Kobe Smith, Rick Sandidge and Keir Thomas (who sometimes plays end). “He’s a heavy-handed guy, can hold the point (of attack),” Muschamp said. “Very athletic. A guy we’re really excited about.”
