Georgia Tech quarterback Lucas Johnson has entered the transfer portal and will to continue his college career elsewhere.
Unsurprisingly, Georgia Tech quarterback Lucas Johnson has entered the transfer portal. The rising redshirt senior announced on Monday afternoon of his intentions
Entering 2019, it was expected that Johnson could see quite a bit of time at the quarterback position. Johnson would see some time and ended up attempting 37 passes over the course of the season. He also had 22 rushing attempts on the season.
That being said, for most of the season, Johnson found himself behind redshirt freshman James Graham on the Jackets quarterback depth chart. With two freshman coming in for the 2020 season including highly touted four-star prospect Jeff Sims, it was possibly that Johnson would be lower on the depth chart in 2020.
A three-star pro-style in the 2016 recruiting class, Johnson committed to Georgia Tech primarily over San Diego State and a few other FCS programs.
It’s likely Johnson will look to return to the west coast to finish his collegiate career though perhaps a drop to an FCS school would be best for the California native. If he does look to stay at the FBS level, San Diego State could make sense for Johnson.
Georgia Tech now has four scholarship quarterbacks on the team for the 2020 season. That group is led by rising redshirt sophomore James Graham, rising redshirt junior Tobias Oliver, and a pair of true freshman in Jeff Sims and Tucker Gleason.
