 Jason Johnson, Central Florida, Player News


  New UCF defensive coordinator Addison Williams will have two of the Knights' top defenders back for the program's inaugural season in the Big 12 Conference. Senior linebacker Jason Johnson and redshirt junior defensive tackle Ricky Barber Jr. announced their intentions to return for the 2023 season on social media Saturday. Johnson is taking advantage of an extra year of eligibility granted to athletes from the NCAA due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Barber could return for the ‘24 season as well if he wants to do the same.

Johnson led the Knights with 126 total tackles - the 8th most for a single season in program history and more than double the next tackler. He added a sack and a forced fumble. Barber recorded a team-high 12 quarterback hurries and finished second on the team in both sacks (3) and tackles for loss (9) to go with 4 pass breakups. He totaled 54 tackles. - Orlando Sentinel

  UCF linebacker Jason Johnson has a significant decision to make. The senior who started every game for the Knights could return for his final year of eligibility when UCF plays its inaugural season in the Big 12 Conference in 2023. "I have an extra year but I [have] not decided yet what I'm going to do," Johnson said. The Eastern Illinois transfer has served as an integral part of UCF's defense this season. Earning first-team All-AAC honors, Johnson (114) finished second in the conference and led the Knights in total tackles.

Making the jump from FCS to FBS didn't seem to be a challenge for Johnson, who boasts more than twice as many tackles as any other UCF player. "It's been a great year," he said. "I did what I thought I was going to do. A lot of people thought I wouldn't do it but I did. For the people who believed in me, I appreciate them." - Orlando Sentinel
