A 6-foot-5, 290-pound talent, Johnson now holds 20 total offers, including invitations from Arizona, Louisville, Ole Miss, UCLA, Arkansas, USC, Tennessee and West Virginia, among others.
The Longhorns do hold a pair of 4-star offensive tackle pledges already in the form of Fisco Wakeland product Rafiti Ghirmai and Seminole prospect Reese Moore, but with offseason attrition set to hit again, headlined by junior offensive tackle Connor Williams departing for the NFL, the need for experienced options is apparent.
Texas has also previously held a pledge from Johnson’s teammate at Arizona Western C.C., elite tight end Dominick Wood-Anderson, who reopened his recruitment on Oct. 23.
