One of the NCAA Football 10 Cover Athletes

While the official announcements of the four cover athletes for NCAA Football 10 won’t be made until Monday one of them is already known. Boucher1234 sent me a tweet this morning that Utah Utes QB Brian Johnson had dropped the news on a Mountain West focused TV show.

Johnson is someone who would’ve seemed unlikely when it came to predicting but the choice does make sense. He isn’t a household name but he did help lead Utah to an undefeated season and a win over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl. He won Most Outstanding Player of that game and over his career had a record of 26-7. Similar to Jared Zabransky and Boise State heading into NCAA 08, Johnson and Utah make for a good story here. In all likelihood Johnson will have the cover of either the PS2 or PSP version.
