Reported by a national columnist at Rivals.

On the 247 Transfer Portal List, Johnson is listed under Defensive Linemen.

Any insight into why Johnson wants out of our program? He’s certainly been a contributor.

Damn it!!!! My fav player!! He will be missed tremendously!! He was a run stopper! He was double teamed every play and sometimes tripled.
He was the best nose tackle we have had in years. His dad lives here in New Iberia. Going have to find out what happened! And he had two years left because of COVID. Man this is huge. I really thought he liked it at TU. And we didn’t sign any tackles in the last class.

I'd like to see him here but our admissions dept would not allow it.

This sucks tremendously for us, but everyone should get use to it. This is the new norm in college football and not just for payers that aren't getting a lot of playing time. I would bet any amount of money that contact is made all the time between coaches from other teams and players prior to them entering the portal. Not like the NCAA will do anything about it.

Last week Tulane offered Kevin Pointer who is a DL transfer from ULM. Must gave known this was coming.

Reason is quite apparent , JJ wants to show NFL teams he can play and dominate against the best .

He does like Tulane and New Orleans but this is a business decision .

Before JJ committed to us he was offered by Nick Saban , but health issues resulted in the offer being pulled . You can be sure he'll join the highest profile team that offers . It would be a miracle if no offers from high profile squads find JJ returning to us .

Most likely someone "connected" has advised JJ to step away from Tulane .
President Fitts , B of A , it's put up or forever hold your peace time . Make Tulane ATHLETICS relevant and top 30 again .

I judge every Tulane recruiting class by their DL class. They are so hard to recruit due to paucity of big quick ones and that position group can be academically challenged. Tulane typically has to develop them. Must get a couple a year. Signing zero DTs tells you what I think of this past year's recruiting class.

I guess 70 years of failed athletic policies, bad decisions, and a complete lack of vision, have finally rendered us into a P5 farm club.

Unfortunately. When the new rule came out I said it would be bad for us. What few top quality athletes we discover will likely move on from us early once they have shown their abilities. Not looking forward to it.

Ouch!
That's going to be felt this season, particularly by our linebackers.
Good luck JJ👍

Fuck JJ. If he’s entered the portal and decides to come back, I would tell him to fuck off.

Calling Mr. Friloux. Mr Adonis Friloux you're going to be taking some snaps - or we go with an even front (only need 2 inside players not 3).

Didn’t Hicks play with the 1’s at the other DT spot in the spring ? Did he play much last year as a freshmen, they must like his potential as well.
