Flanery on Johnson
“Taylor is going to redshirt this season, she got hurt in early July. She is going to rehab her knee. She has been tremendously positive. Taylor had enough success that she and we as a staff know she can play at this level. That will help her stay motivated through the rehabilitation process. This could give her a chance to have a greater impact in years to come.”
