56 DAYS TO KICKOFF: Terrale Johnson

New, 1 comment

In which BracketCat counts down the 56th day until kickoff with a profile of offensive lineman Terrale Johnson.

I really can't draw any connections between Terrale Johnson and Terry Pierce (other than their first names, maybe). I just wanted a picture of a badass dude wearing No. 56.

Terrale W. Johnson (b. June 29, 1994) is a community college player who redshirted during the 2014 season.  This year, he will compete for playing time in the interior of the offensive line, probably at one of the guard positions.

He was a Signing Day surprise for Kansas State. No one had heard of him before he faxed in his letter of intent in February 2014. He had no other offers, but was drawing interest and a possible visit from Tennessee State.

Johnson, who played two seasons under head coach Rion Rhodes for Hutchinson Community College, 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.

He also helped Hutchinson to pick up back-to-back Salt City Bowl victories. Watch his JUCO 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, not to mention Deante Burton.

Johnson helped the Indians to earn an 11-1 record during his senior campaign and a trip to the quarterfinals of the Kansas Class 6A State Championship. He was a first-team All-Centennial League performer and a Kansas Football Coaches Association first-team All-6A selection in 2011.
