Mike Boynton and the Oklahoma State Cowboys received some good news on Saturday afternoon with the commitment of four-star point guard Jeremiah Johnson.
Johnson chose the Cowboys over offers eight different schools, four of which are current members of the Big 12. Boynton earned a commitment from Johnson, keeping him away from TCU, Oklahoma, Texas, and Texas Tech who were all actively pursuing the Arizona native.
Johnson is listed as a four-star prospect by the 247Sports index and currently checks in as the nation’s 141st-ranked recruit. He is also listed as the 12th-ranked point guard in the class of 2024 as well as the 11th-ranked player in the state of Arizona.
Jeremiah Johnson’s story is an incredible one as his commitment announcement to join the Cowboys comes two years after Johnson was temporarily paralyzed as the victim of a shooting.
The Oklahoma City native told 247Sports’ Eric Bossi, “I’m going to Oklahoma State, it feels really good going back home. I’m also committing to a coach that really believes in me and has recruited me since I was in middle school and I get to be close to my family.”
Johnson continues the next chapter of his triumphant return in 2024 when he heads to Stillwater to join Mike Boynton in pursuit of a Big 12 title. Jeremiah Johnson will get a chance to see his future squad in action on November 16th when Oklahoma State tips off their 2023-24 season against St. Bonaventure.
