Receiver Amari Johnson finally gets chance with UCF, and it’s worth the wait – The Denver Post

1 min read


Amari Johnson has had to wait his turn.

In a new college football world in which players regularly enter the NCAA transfer portal instead of riding the bench, the Miami native has stayed loyal to UCF.

Despite a coaching change halfway through his four years and sitting on the depth chart behind wide receivers such as Gabriel Davis, Jacob Harris and Tre Nixon — all in the NFL now — Johnson never wavered.

“That was pretty much the best thing for me,” Johnson said. “Just to learn from those guys and be able to take what those guys did on the field, [I] implement it into my style of play.”

Johnson showed why the wait was worth it during Saturday’s spring game when he caught 4 passes for 66 yards and 2 touchdowns, including the first score of the intrasquad scrimmage.
