(WAFF) - A year ago Tuesday, Kerryon Johnson was preparing for his senior season at Madison Academy.
Now the 2014 Mr. Football in the state of Alabama wears a Auburn jersey as he prepares for his freshman season on the Plains.
Johnson is expected to see playing time in his first season with the program. As for practice number one, Head Coach Gus Malzahn wants to bring along some of his young playmakers slowly.
"We let our young guys watch for the early part of practice, to kinda get a good understanding of how we do things, we spent a little extra time, we slowed down with those guys," said. Malzahn. "We feel like we have some young guys that have a chance to help us this year, so we want make sure, and give them a good foundation early in fall camp, so they can really retain it better because things are going to get picked up in the next three or four days."
The Tigers practice again Wednesday afternoon.
