It’s hard to believe that there are 68 wide receivers in the country better than Greenwich (Conn.) Brunswick three-star wide receiver Cornelius Johnson. In fact, it’s likely impossible after watching him through the week so far in San Antonio for the All-American Bowl.
The 6-3, 195-pounder comes from a region of the country that doesn’t get a ton of football attention but he’s proving that he belongs on the big stage.
Players, coaches and analysts have all noticed Johnson’s ability and he’s definitely an ascending player this week.
Monroe (N.C.) Sun Valley four-star pro-style quarterback Sam Howell is one of the quarterbacks for the East squad so he’s been able to see Johnson work from a distribution standpoint. The 6-1, 215-pounder has been impressed with the standout from New England.
