With 15 commitments, spanning eight different states, Oklahoma currently has the top recruiting class in the Big 12 for 2021 and is ranked #14 nationally. That class took a hit on Monday morning when Caleb Johnson announced his decommitment and the re-opening of his recruiting.
The 5-10/170 prospect from Greenville, Texas is a two-way player and a two-sport star. Helping his football team to the playoffs last season, and setting up the relay team to make it to state before everything was canceled, Johnson is known for his blazing speed.
He’s been clocked at 4.39 in the 40-yard dash by his coaches but the real proof is in the game results. Johnson led the team in receptions with 429 yards, and six touchdowns, on just 30 receptions.
In addition to his big-play ability, Caleb Johnson also possesses the skills to be a lock-down corner on the defensive side of the ball and that seems to be where Oklahoma wanted him.
“Right now they’re recruiting me at defensive back,” Johnson told the Greenville Harold Banner when he committed to Oklahoma back in July. “I can play both. Really, I just want to play. Whichever one gets me the furthest.”
