A source close to Texas quarterback commit Roschon Johnson will miss Port Neches-Groves’ game against Tomball on Saturday after reaggravating an ankle sprain in the loss last Friday against Huntsville. It’s probable that Johnson, a four-star commit who pledged to the Longhorns last summer, will miss multiple weeks. The dual-threat quarterback hopes to be back for the district opener against Vidor on Oct. 5, or at least the next week for an important road game against Crosby.
Johnson is the lone quarterback Texas plans to take in the 2019 cycle. The Longhorns signed two players at the position in the 2018 class and already hold a pledge from 2020 dual-threat quarterback Hudson Card of Lake Travis. Johnson isn’t the only future Longhorn currently missing games with injury. Wide receiver commit Jordan Whittington had groin surgery in the offseason and is yet to make his season debut.
