58 DAYS TO KICKOFF: Dakorey Johnson

When even our best linebacker had trouble keeping up with the Oregon Ducks, you know we need a serious infusion of speed. Hopefully, the athletic Dakorey Johnson will help in that regard. - Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

In which BracketCat counts down the 58th day until kickoff with a profile of linebacker Dakorey Johnson.

I'm not quite sure what happened with this one, because I thought I had it set to publish earlier. Guess I need a few more days to knock off all the blogging rust, huh?

Anyway, I will be using the holiday weekend to work ahead a bit on these, so they should be showing up around 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. most days if I accomplish that.

Bio

Position: Linebacker

Previous College: Trinity Valley (Texas) Community College

Projection: Second-String

Status: On Scholarship

Dakorey Johnson is the younger brother of star K-State wide receiver Quincy Morgan. Johnson tallied 82 tackles, including seven tackles for loss, and five sacks in his two seasons at Trinity Valley Community College.

He was named a second-team All-District 11-5A linebacker as a senior in 2009 at Mesquite North High School.

It's my humble opinion that we are counting on Johnson to be in at least the two-deep this fall, given that he probably will be the most athletic linebacker we have on the roster who's older than a freshman.

That's even more imperative after we bombed on the recruitments of Martrell Spaight and De'Vondre Campbell (damn you, Arkansas and Minnesota).

The problem is, Johnson isn't yet on campus. He's supposed to show up later this month, but these late JUCO arrivals always are a cause for concern.
