Another day, another player leaving to look for greener playing time pastures.
The latest to suffer personnel attrition is Arizona State, with James Johnson taking to his personal Twitter account to announce his decision to transfer from the Sun Devils. The defensive back will be graduating from ASU this May, which would allow him to play immediately at another FBS program for his final season of eligibility.

A three-star member of the Sun Devils’ 2013 recruiting class, Johnson was rated as the No. 84 safety in the country coming out of high school in California. He held offers from, among others, Fresno State, Houston, Nevada and Oregon State.
After redshirting as a true freshman, Johnson played in 23 games the next two seasons. Injuries limited him to just one game this past season.
