The son of 15-year NFL veteran Brad Johnson, Max has had a solid but unique college career so far. After first entering the collegiate ranks as a four-star pro-style quarterback at LSU, Max started two games with the Tigers as a true freshman, totaling 1,069 yards, eight touchdowns and just one interception. As a true sophomore, Max exploded onto the scene throwing for 2,815 yards and 27 touchdowns to just six interceptions while starting all 12 games for LSU.
Max transferred to Texas A&M in the 2021 offseason and ended up starting three out of the Aggies‘ first four games, throwing for 517 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions but missed the rest of the season due to an injury and took a redshirt. Heading into camp this season, Max lost the starting role to Conner Weigman but took over after the latter suffered injuries of his own, finishing the year with 1,452 yards, nine touchdowns and five interceptions over eight games.
While Max has struggled to find a home in four years in college football, it is clear that there is talent if a team can figure out how to harness it. With that being said, here are five landing spots for Max.
