Travis Johnson Underachieving? That's Unpossible!

With National Signing Day quickly approaching, I was looking for information from various recruiting sources, primarily because I'm a tool who's glutton for punishment. Imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon this list from a few years back and immediately read this gem:

2. Travis Johnson, DL

6-4, 258 4.6

Sherman Oaks (Notre Dame), Calif.


"Explodes off the ball, outstanding closing speed, great reactions."

That's right, folks. Travis Johnson--this Travis Johnson--was once rated the second-best recruit in all the land. If that doesn't make you take every bit of information you read about college recruiting with a cinderblock-sized grain of salt (while simultaneously shaking your head in disgust as a Texans fan), I don't know what to tell you.
