I have never read the situation to be a work ethic thing. He cracked the two deep as a true freshman, obviously our lack of depth contributed to that, but it still isn't something to overlook. I don't think Perry moving to Will (if thats what it is even called anymore) say's anything about Johnson's inability to play to there, and more has everything to do with our scheme shift and Perry being a better fit. My understanding is that the Will now factors in much more in run defense, while the Sam (i.e. walk out backer spot) will be heavily involved in pass coverage. Given that, shifting Perry makes since. Beyond that, Lee and Worley are more suited to playing in coverage, as they are much more your hybrid "star" type linebacker which quarters coverage will need. Granted, it did sound like Lee and Worley both busted thier ass and are earning a shot, that said, I never got the sense in reading spring practice reports that Johnson was in the dog house or anything like that. Frankly, I would be surprised if you don't see Johnson in place of Lee/Worley in the more traditional looks 4-3 base looks we are accustomed too. I say that now before the other 3 prize backers from the incoming class are on campus, so maybe you will see Berger and or Booker. To me, seeing where Johnson sits after training camp will be much more telling than anything to date. I think it is also worth mentioning that I see our linebackers as a pretty fluid situation right now. It bears keeping in mind that alot of the scheme that they put in during the spring is all new, although it did seem they were dumbing it down to pair with Urban's effort mantra. However, I will not be shocked at all if things are very different on day one than they are now as far as our starters.
