Wide Receiver Commits

Recently, Dallas Skyline wide receiver Thomas Johnson committed to play in next January's Under Armour All-American game.

Monday, Johnson made another commitment, with this choice focusing on his future school. One of the state's best wide receivers, the four-star talent elected to stay home for his college career, giving his commitment to Texas.

The 6-foot, 175-pound Johnson missed most of his junior season with a knee injury, but was able to work through it to hit the field late in the year. When healthy, he's displayed game-breaking ability and speed. In limited action in 2010, he grabbed 20 catches for 360 yards and two touchdowns.

Johnson was one of three wide receivers — with Dominique Wheeler and Cayleb Jones being the others — to receive Texas offers on the first Texas Junior Day earlier this month.

Johnson picked Texas over offers from Arizona, Auburn, Baylor, California, Iowa, Miami, Purdue, Texas A&M, TCU, UCLA and USC, among others. Johnson makes the seventh commitment in Texas's 2012 class, and the first wide receiver commitment of the group.
