Olabisi Johnson, whose Nigerian first name means "to bring prosperity to your family," hopes to do just that by becoming a professional receiver. He has been overshadowed by talented Rams receivers in Michael Gallup and Preston Williams during his final three years at CSU, but his production has been noteworthy. He caught 41 passes for 595 yards (14.5 average) and two scores while returning 14 punts for 122 yards (8.7 average) in 12 games (seven starts) in 2017. Johnson started eight games across from Gallup in 2016, averaging a strong 21.9 yards per catch (613 yards) and scoring four times on 28 catches. The Lakewood, Colorado, native played in 13 games with one start as a true freshman in 2015 (2-15-7.5, one TD receiving). Johnson started 11 contests as a senior, catching 54 passes for 796 yards (14.7 average) and four touchdowns for the Rams.
