RB Roschon Johnson still plans to return to QB

AUSTIN, Texas — Three months ago, a freshman quarterback stood up in front of his Texas Longhorns teammates and selfishly said that he would do anything to help the team.

Fast forward three months and that freshman quarterback, Roschon Johnson, finished the regular season as the team’s No. 2 running back after sports hernia surgery sidelined fellow freshman Jordan Whittington for each of the final 11 games and the position dealt with a handful of other injuries.

Johnson quickly made his mark as a running back, showing natural vision and decisiveness, ability to finish through contact, and excellent ball security.
