Cornerback Cortez Johnson has decided to follow Mike Stoops to Norman, Oklahoma and will play for the Sooners. A true freshman for the Wildcats in 2011, Cortez played in eight games where he recorded 16 tackles and a pass broken up.
Johnson was a 3-star prospect coming out of O. Perry Walker High School in New Orleans. In addition to Arizona, he received offers from Louisiana Tech, Minnesota, Pittsburgh and Southern Miss.
Due to the NCAA transfer rule, Johnson will be ineligible for the 2012 season but will be able to add depth and experience at a position that will lose starter Demontre Hurst following this season.
Welcome to Sooner Nation, Cortez!
