You’ll have to forgive defensive back Johnny Johnson Jr. (Fresno, Calif./Central East) for being a little excited right now. After some scattered interest on the recruiting trail, Johnson has blown up in the last eight days.

One of those offers was from Oklahoma as the Sooners reached out to Johnson on Thursday afternoon. Some offers haven’t caught Johnson by surprise. The OU one, however, Johnson admits to not seeing that one coming.

“I hadn’t talked or really considered OU much at that point, but I’m definitely interested,” Johnson said. “They’re a team that’s always on television so I know they have a great winning tradition. They said they looked at my film and liked what they saw.”
