Position: Offensive Line

Status: On Scholarship
Terrale Johnson was a signing day surprise for Kansas State. No one had heard of him before he faxed in his letter of intent in February. He had no other offers, but was drawing interest and a possible visit from Tennessee State.
Johnson played two seasons under head coach Rion Rhodes for Hutch Community College.
He was named an honorable mention All-Jayhawk Conference player in 2013 after helping the Blue Dragons to earn an 8-4 record and a No. 17 final ranking. The Blue Dragons were 9-3 and finished No. 12 nationally in 2012.
Johnson also helped Hutchinson to pick up back-to-back Salt City Bowl victories. Watch his highlights here.
Prior to his arrival in Hutch, Johnson was a two-year starter under head coach Joe Schartz for Manhattan High School, where he was a teammate of fellow 2014 K-State commit Winston Dimel.
Johnson helped the Indians to earn an 11-1 record during his senior campaign and a trip to the quarterfinals of the Kansas 6A State Championship.
A first-team All-Centennial League performer and a Kansas Football Coaches Association first-team All-6A selection in 2011, Johnson puts no limits on what he can accomplish this fall, he told GoPowercat.com.
"The coaches want me to come in in June when I get there and compete for a starting spot this season. I'm going to go in and give it my best to help the team out."
Given his later arrival and quiet recruitment, though, coupled with our extreme depth on the offensive line, I'm hesitant to predict great things immediately. Johnson has a redshirt year available and I think he uses it.
