Tyler Johnson is set for yet another stellar season with Gophers football.

The Gophers' leading receiver showed no signs of off-season rust as he pulled in a spectacular one-handed grab on Thursday.

The Gophers moved forward their spring game up to Thursday to avoid the weekend weather.

And it prompted fireworks from Johnson, who made 35 catches for 677 yards and 7 touchdowns in 2017, who caused audible gasps as he made the spectacular grab from Tanner Morgan's pass.
