2018 Mountain West Football 50 Best Players: #34, Colorado State WR Olabisi Johnson
The Rams’ leading returning receiver continues this year’s countdown of Mountain West football’s top 50 players.
Johnson could be the next elite CSU receiver.
Our list of this year’s 50 best football players in the Mountain West turns once more to Colorado State, where wide receiver Olabisi Johnson comes in at #34.
Johnson spent 2017 alongside Michael Gallup but put up solid numbers as part of the conference’s highest-rated passing attack. He caught 41 passes for 595 yards and two touchdowns, with a catch rate of 60% and a 14.5 YPC averaged that ranked seventh in the Mountain West.
Now heading into his senior year, Johnson is expected to be the number one option for whoever ends up under center. Don’t be surprised if his 2018 ends up looking a lot like those of Gallup and Rashard Higgins before him.
