Arizona wide receiver Tyrell Johnson makes list of ‘fastest players’ in 2015

Tyrell Johnson is an exciting player to watch for the Arizona Wildcats next season.

The sophomore wide receiver was listed at no.7 on NFL.com’s 15 for ’15: College football’s fastest players.

Johnson made most of his impact in the kick return game where he averaged 23.7 yards per return. At only 5’7″ and 160 lbs., Johnson’s impact is made through his elusiveness and his speed.

Arizona’s offense did see Johnson at times, as the wide receiver had 14 catches for 120 yards and three touchdowns in his freshman season.

Johnson’s three rushes for 19 yards on the season showed that head coach Rich Rodriguez is looking to get him more involved in the offense.

One of Johnson’s best performances of the season came against Oregon when he had four returns for 99 yards and one catch for 17 yards.

Johnson’s speed gives him the ability to swing games and that will be important for the Wildcats next season.

TCU’s Kolby Listenbee was first on the list.
