Arguably the most pleasant surprise of season 2 of the Netflix series “Last Chance U” was Florida State transfer and quarterback De’Andre Johnson.
Johnson appeared to show genuine remorse for his past actions (he punched a woman at a bar and was kicked out of Florida State), leadership skills, ability to be a team player and to be a fantastic athlete. He proved he was as good, if not better than East Mississippi predecessors Jonathan Franklin III (Auburn), Chad Kelly (Ole Miss), and Bo Wallace (Ole Miss).
But despite that, he landed no Power 5 scholarship. He accepted an offer to play for Florida Atlantic. And as preseason camp begins, the disappointments are continuing.
