Four-Star Safety Jamel Johnson Commits to TCU

NCAA Football: Iowa State at Texas Christian

The TCU Horned Frogs continue to take advantage of their hot hand as they gear up for the College Football Playoff and have added another big-time recruit with local four-star safety Jamel Johnson committing play for Sonny Dykes.

Johnson made his announcement on Twitter on Friday afternoon.


Johnson ranks as the No. 33 safety in the nation according to the 247Sports composite ratings. The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder was originally committed to the Texas Longhorns before reopening his recruitment back in early November.

Johnson made an official visit to the TCU football team over the weekend. The Seguin High School standout and Arlington native chose TCU over Texas and Ole Miss and had offers from several other schools including Penn State, Michigan, Oregon, USC Alabama and others.

TCU’s 2023 recruiting class is now ranked in the Top 20 (No. 18) in the nation and includes seven four-star recruits.
