5-star Clemson pledge Johnson named Indiana's Mr. Football

Clemson commitment Hunter Johnson was named the 2016 IndyStar Indiana Mr. Football winner on Wednesday.

The five-star quarterback from Brownsburg, Ind., beat out Cathedral four-star linebacker Pete Werner and Center Grove three-star running back and Louisville commit Russ Yeast for the award, which is presented annually to the top player in the state as voted on by the Indiana Football Coaches Association ratings board.

Johnson threw for 2,233 yards and 25 touchdowns as a senior this season while rushing for 525 yards and three touchdowns as he led his team to an 8-2 record and conference championship. He was recently named to play in the 2017 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, which will take place on Jan. 7 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder passed for 6,657 yards and 69 touchdowns during his high school career.

Johnson, one of the top prospects in the 2017 class, committed to Clemson last December. He has signed his scholarship papers and is expected to enroll early.
