The Oklahoma Sooners now have 13 commitments in the class of 2018, as Brenham, Texas, wide receiver Treveon Johnson has announced his intention to play college football in Norman. Johnson was previously committed to the Texas Tech Red Raiders, but he announced his decommitment from Kliff Kingsbury’s program on May 5. The three-star prospect has also been heavily recruited by the TCU Horned Frogs.
After Kundarrius Taylor’s friday announcement and today’s announcement from Johnson, Oklahoma’s 2018 wide receiver class is beginning to take shape. If Oklahoma can secure another commitment from Jaylon Robinson on Monday, OU will have picked up three wide receiver commitments in just four days.
While Johnson may not be receiving a ton of hype from the recruiting outlets (he’s ranked 108th nationally at the WR position), he certainly displays plenty of upside on film. Kartik Rajendran had this to say about Johnson earlier this month prior to his visit to Norman:
“It’s evident from his film that Treveon Johnson is a natural playmaker with good speed and tremendous agility. He is an elusive, natural open-field runner and shows the knack for making contested catches on the perimeter. At 6-2, 180 pounds, Johnson appears to have quite the upside and could blossom into one of the Lone Star State’s most improved prospects in his senior season, which he’ll play at Brenham High School (Brenham, Texas) after spending the last three years at Giddings High School in Giddings, Texas.”
