I know saw a lot of people on this board don't think he will be a good player at UF. I have to disagree. When I look at a player I don't just look at his football skills but his background. CT has lived in G-Ville his whole life. He is probably the biggest Gator fan in our class. He had been to every home game I heard. I think he has seen 1st hand what it takes to be a Gator & will work his hardest. UF gave him his only real D-1 offer. I know he had others but they were from cupcake schools. This is a bold bold prediction but I think he will have a better career then Alvin Bailey who is the only other WR recruit like him (For size/speed purposes) Bailey will have a nice career don't get me wrong I love him too I just have this feeling that CT will show us why rankings mean nothing. All rankings are are for us fans to get excited & know the players before they are apart of a U. They truly mean nothing, rankings don't play football, human beings do. That's why I have so much confidence in CT. He is my sleeper for this class. Once he learns how to run better routes & read the soft spots in the D I think he will show us all why rankings can't teach two things...heart & love for ones school. Not saying the other commits don't love UF but you have to believe a kid who is from G-Ville & only had one decent offer from his hometown team will make us proud. Go Gators!

JR. in this bih...
His brother, Miguel Johnson, who came out in '05 or 06, though not known in Recruiting circles was one of the best players in DECADES to play high school football in Gainesville. He was a very SMART football player who made honey badger like plays on D and was like Vick in his prime at QB. He went on to North Carolina Central with Tim Shankle. Problem was he was about 5'7". Had he been 6 foot like Chris and had the grades he could have played on sundays IMO. If he is anything like his bro he is a hard worker and will succeed.
Agree with most of what u said but I think CT could contribute returning kick early in his career as far as sleepers go by far and beyond Adam lane is the biggest sleper out of this class kid gets no respect.
You can't teach speed and he sure has that
I can't see it, but who knows.
I mainly don't like his frame, and his hands were average at best every time I saw him. Great kid, though.

Im leaning more along the lines for Marqui Hawkins, thats been my "sleeper" pick. I like the way the guy is built
At least swampchomp want get on here with Fulwood hating.
Thompson is explosive as hell, has great straight line speed, and good ball skills. We need all the deep threats we can get at this point.
CT could never take over a game in high school, he will be another Earl Okine. Except, he won't even be a significant contributor. Watching GHS football, if I didn't look out for him never would know him
To be fair wasn't he forced to play out of position? Also your teammates make a big difference. I'm relatively close with a top 15 RB in the nation who didn't put up huge numbers this year mainly due to a having just a horrible offensive line.
Chris dropped some passes, he looked like the 2nd best receiver on the team for multiple games this year. I hope he proves me wrong, just haven't seen anything this year warranting an offer from UF.
If your saying he shouldn't warrant an offer then why haven't they offered denson? We offered jackson.
My nephew played against CT, two years in a row. Says CT wouldn't be in the top 5 WR'S he faced talent wise. Posed no real threat other than good speed. His words.
Joker is gonna coach him up. He'll be fine.
"You're not a good guy, you go somewhere else. We'll play you. We'll beat you."
Speaking of Tim Shankle. Shank is one of my personal trainers. He also trains Chris Thompson in the offseason. He says Chris trains like a professional, like its his job. He is hungry and wants to succeed.
GHS went into the championship gm ranked #1.
He was surrounded by talent, this season and his jr. season.
