LCA Star Football Player Ju’Juan Johnson Commits to Colorado
One of the most talented football players in the Acadiana area has announced where he'll be playing college football.
Lafayette Christian Academy four-star athlete Ju'Juan Johnson has decided to play his college football for Deion Sanders and the Colorado Buffaloes.
The 5-foot-11, 180-pounder took a visit to Boulder last weekend.
“I’m most excited about just going there and being developed for the next level beyond college while helping the program win games,” Johnson told 247Sports.
While Johnson plays quarterback at LCA, he is projected to move to cornerback in college.
However, if his 2023 senior campaign is anything like his junior year, who knows?
In the fall, Johnson threw for 3,976 yards and 43 touchdowns for the Knights. He tacked on another 1,284 yards rushing along with 17 scores on the ground.
Johnson led his team to the Louisiana Select Division II championship game in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in December where they fell in the last seconds to the St Thomas More Cougars.
Johnson held 18 total offers, including from national powers like Alabama, Georgia, Florida State, Texas, and Penn State. He dwindled his choice down to three earlier this week, eventually choosing Colorado over LSU and Florida.
