Harbaugh May Have Some Company

Don't be surprised to see San Diego quarterback Josh Johnson, left, follow Jim Harbaugh to his next coaching gig. Johnson is considered to be among the top junior quarterbacks in the nation. He leads all I-AA quarterbacks with a 179.3 efficiency rating and has thrown for 32 touchdowns and only four interceptions. Johnson didn't get a look from I-A programs coming out of Oakland Tech High because he was only 5 feet 10, 145 pounds. Now he is listed at 6-3, 195 pounds. Johnson would have to sit out a season under NCAA transfer rules, then be eligible for his senior season. Iowa State will enter next season with senior Bret Meyer at quarterback, so if Johnson were to follow Harbaugh to Iowa State, he likely would become the starting quarterback in the 2008 season.

If Harbaugh is chosen for the ISU job and Johnson follows, don't count on him starting over Austin Arnaud during the 08 season.
