High School: One of two players in this year’s freshman class whose father was a standout player for the Buckeyes … his father, Thomas “Pepper” Johnson, earned first-team All-America honors at Ohio State in 1985 at linebacker before going on to a brilliant professional career … Dionte was a star in his own right in high school, earning first-team All-Ohio honors as a senior … has outstanding speed for a fullback and is a tough, punishing blocker … in one of the more unusual position switches, he played center as a junior before being switched to fullback for his final season (not unlike former Ohio State All-American Steve Luke who began his career at center and was switched to cornerback where he earned All-America honors) … rated the 22nd best fullback in the nation by Prep Football Report … SuperPrep rated him as one of the top 70 overall prospects in the Midwest … won the Columbus city wrestling championship as a junior at the 215-pound weight class.

Personal: Is the son of Pepper Johnson and Monica Hawkins … his father is an assistant coach with the 2004 Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots.
