Texas football claimed its biggest recruit yet in the 2019 recruiting class as four-star quarterback Roschon Johnson committed to the Longhorns.
Johnson, a 6-1, 192-pound junior to be from Port Neches, Texas, led his team to an 11-2 record last season. During his breakout season, Johnson threw for 2,358 yards and 26 touchdowns and rushed for 1,620 yards and 30 touchdowns. He was most valuable player in District 22-5A.
Cat Vasquez of the Austin American-Statesman reported that Johnson made his call on Twitter Friday night. His announcement comes after the Longhorns’ Texas’ Stars at Night Recruiting Event.
Committed. #HookEm 🤘🏽🐂

Johnson could be UT’s top QB recruit in recent memory?
The Longhorns have struggled finding productive quarterbacks since Colt McCoy left after the 2009 season. He had considered several other major schools, including North Carolina, Clemson, Florida State, Florida, Ohio State, Baylor and others.
It prompted a congratulatory tweet from Texas sophomore safety P.J. Locke III.
