He went to Richmond Road Primary School in Auckland, New Zealand. When he moved back to the US, he went to a high school in Hawaii for the 10th grade. The next year, Johnson's family had to move to Pennsylvania, which is where he became interested in football.
He went to the University of Miami on a football scholarship because they gave it to him. He was on the Miami team that won the national championship, but he was taken off the team because he got hurt.
