Collin Johnson has the potential to be as good as any other legendary wide receiver that Texas has had, but he needs to be more consistent.
According to Brian Davis of the Austin American-Statesman, Johnson understands his struggles, and is working on repairing them.

“I definitely want to be that elite guy, but it’s taking it day by day,” said Johnson. “I don’t want to worry too much about the future. I’ve got to worry about how I can get better in that film study, how I can get better in that practice field, how I can be a better teammate to my teammates, how I can be a better leader to some of the younger guys like Brennan Eagles and we’ve some more coming in.”
Johnson had 765 receiving yards during the 2017 season, but 316 of those yards came in two games. While Johnson’s numbers certainly could be lower, if you want to be classified as elite, consistency will play a part.
