Johnson is the second cornerback to pick Texas in the 2021 recruiting class, joining fellow four-star Ishmael Ibraheem. Johnson was a two-way starter as a junior, recording 32 tackles and four interceptions on defense, while accounting for 17 catches and 217 yards as a wide receiver. Defensive back is his future as he possesses the versatility to stay at cornerback or evolve into a safety.
