“It was a blast, so much fun,” Johnson said, via USA TODAY. “I could not have expected a better time.

“A lot of that was those receivers,. Those are some pretty fast dudes. It was great to see those guys get in the end zone. We knew with the coverages they run this week we would have some chances to take some shots and we took advantage of it. I went over the top and put it out there for him.”

Johnson, a five-star standout from Brownsburg, Indiana, is the No. 2 rated pro-style quarterback in the nation.

Clemson has the No. 13 recruiting class in the country for 2017.
