Texas: 4 Star ILB Gary Johnson (6’1-225) (Dodge City, KS)
Coming out of JUCO as the #1 rated inside linebacker prospect, Johnson is just the guy the Longhorns have been looking for. Texas has been searching for an inside backer for the last few seasons and Johnson is the new sheriff in town. He has some serious speed finding the football and making plays all over the field. Though he may not actually be 225 pounds, Johnson is still aggressive enough to fight off blocks to find the ball carrier. He has the speed of a defensive back playing linebacker and I have already penciled him in as a starter for Texas in 2017.
