Rick Forney on Ryan Johnson: He’s a talented kid. He’s a unique story, starting his college career back in 2011 and just finished up his eligibility this year. He did really well at Lubbock Christian, which is a good Division-II program. He throws a lot of strikes. The ball comes out of his hand well, and he has good secondary stuff.
