The Skinny

Johnson was among the very first scholarship offers of the Frost era, committed relatively early in the process and has stuck by his pledge. He shared duty much of his career at powerhouse Bergen Catholic in New Jersey, but the Brooklyn, New York, native flourished in a primary role as a senior, rushing for 1,334 yards (6.3 per carry) and 11 touchdowns. Given NU’s backfield youth, Johnson will have every opportunity to get on the field early.

Running backs coach Ryan Held's take

"He comes from a great high school program in New Jersey. Rahmir’s a guy, when you watch the film, he really can run, he’s got really good hands, so he’s a guy that we’re very excited to come in and get in the mix early at the running back spot. The big thing about him is he comes from a great family and he’s a great kid. When we went the school and went around everybody was very high on him in terms of him as a person, his character and how hard he works. Obviously talent-wise, we’re very excited about him, but when you get those other intangible things, it’s awesome to get a kid like that in our program."
