In the video, Johnson describes what it was like growing up in Louisville and describes a little about what his family life was like. Apparently, his family was pretty big into sports.
Johnson wears number 13 and wore it throughout his high school career. However, that was not the number he intended to wear in high school. He explains what number he intended to wear, why he went with 13, and why he has stuck with that number.
Johnson sheds some light on his recruitment and commitment to UofL. He discusses his visits to UofL, the manner in which he committed to the Cards, the expectations and pressure that may have accompanied his commitment, and how he keeps those in perspective.
Johnson then delves into the shoulder injury he suffered recently. He speaks about a previous injury he had when he was younger and how it has prepared him to handle this injury. Though disappointed by the injury, Johnson talks about how he keeps the injury itself in perspective. He ends the video explaining his immediate goals as he continues his injury rehab.
