Earlier this afternoon, Georgia Tech QB Lucas Johnson announced that he had entered the transfer portal.
Johnson came to Tech as a three-star recruit in the class of 2016 from San Diego, CA. He was redshirted his freshman season and saw limited action as Taquon Marshall’s backup in 2017. As a RS sophomore, Johnson unfortunately suffered a foot injury during fall camp and was out for the entire season. Earlier this summer however, Johnson got some good news as he was granted a waiver for an extra year of eligibility after missing an entire year of football.
This season, under Geoff Collins, Johnson played in six games, with his most action coming against South Florida, The Citadel, and Pittsburgh. The California native threw for one passing touchdown, and completed 21 out of 37 attempts for 187 yards on the year. In his six games, Johnson rushed 22 times for 43 yards, with his longest run being for 13 yards.
We here at FTRS wish Lucas nothing but the best as he moves forward, and would like to thank him for his time on the Flats!
Good luck, Lucas!
