LSU QB signee Max Johnson busy working on his game while away from Baton Rouge
Max Johnson should be working on his craft with his LSU teammates right now in Baton Rouge.
Unfortunately, the recent LSU signee and early enrollee doesn’t have that option as the SEC has placed a halt on all sports activities until the end of May due to the coronavirus pandemic.
But time away from Baton Rouge does not equal relaxation time for the true freshman signal-caller. Following the departure of Joe Burrow to the NFL, the Tigers most assuredly be leaning on Myles Brennan to take the field when the season starts but the backup duties in Baton Rouge are currently up for grabs.
Enrolling early at LSU was part of the plan to jumpstart his college career and participate in his first college spring but the postponement of spring football led to Johnson’s return to Georgia.
That’s why any work Johnson can put in on the field now is so vital to his development once he does return to Baton Rouge. LSU likely won’t have time to bring him into the fold at a relaxed pace, not when you consider the team didn’t get much practice in the spring.
Johnson was eager to show he isn’t taking his time back home in Georgia off as he shared the following workout videos on Twitter:

Johnson signed with LSU out of Watkinsville, Ga., and was rated as a four-star prospect in the 2020 recruiting cycle. The No. 10 pro-style passer in the nation picked LSU over scholarship offers from Auburn, Georgia and Florida State, among others.
If you were unaware, Max is the son of former NFL quarterback Brad Johnson.
