Sounds like Kirk Johnson is indeed returning for next year. If he's finally healthy, he should be able to contribute. While he didn't play much at RB at all this year, he did participate on special teams through 9 games – without an injury. So this is promising.

If he can play RB next year that would be huge.  Johnson could take over the role Tre Watson played.  I say that and I haven't seen him carry the football since the 32 yard run he had against TT 3 years ago.  I dont trust Young at this point.  Plus it helps with talking Collin into coming back.

Just watching the bowl practices, he looks more explosive than any other back on the roster.

Where did you see clips of the practice 

On OB. Media was allowed to watch practice for 15 minutes.

C. Rising and C. Thompson were running 3rd and 4th team. Hand spent a lot of time working with D. Okafor. A. Wheeler and G. Johnson were flying to the ball but A. Adeoye was just as quick or quicker than both. C. Sterns and B. Jones were full participant with Jones going 100%.

Young isn't even very good in short yardage. He should never touch another football here. He can't make anyone miss and is not very effective in moving the pile. Gotta find someone to replace what Watson gave us.

Whoa...isn't that a tad bit harsh? He's just a sophomore. He could become a short yardage specialist. He has the build and running style for that. JMO

Thats why I've been a big fan since he stepped on campus.

I could definitely see him being the #2 with Keaontay next year. His highlights from high school were phenomenal. Here’s to hoping. Would love to see him healthy enough to play the spring game.

he just doesn't seem to move the pile like you want. Sam does a better job in short yardage than Young. Young is just listed at 6'0" and 225 so he's really not that big but doesn't have the ability to make people miss. I hope he proves me wrong. All I know is we need 3 backs for next year and Ingram is the only proven talent. Somebodies going to have to step up.

Per Chip Brown, Collin Johnson stated that the NFL Advisory Committee advised him to stay in school. Says he is going to discuss the next step with his family before making a formal announcement. 

Opinion: I’ve always felt it CJ was more likely than LJ to return to school and I don’t think this will hurt the odds of him staying Inc Austin.

I somewhat agree. Young is a mystery.

I think his biggest shortcoming is vision cause he's always running into the back of lineman. It's the lack of vision that really hurts him in short yardage. But physically he's got ability to run over people, so always left with the feeling he should've got more yards.
