The Oklahoma State Cowboys men’s basketball team announced signing of Jeremiah Johnson during the early signing period.
At the moment, Johnson is Oklahoma State’s only signee for the Class of 2024.
Johnson is from Oklahoma City, but he’s playing in the Overtime Elite League with Arizona-based Phoenix Prep after he graduated from Utah’s Wasatch Academy last spring.
He’s a four-star recruit, as ranked by multiple services. He is the nation’s No. 141 prospect in the Class of 2024 per 247Sports.com. He chose OSU over LSU, SMU, Saint Louis and Big 12 rival TCU.
OSU offered Johnson when he was a sophomore at Putnam City North High School.
After the offer, he averaged 23.0 points that season and was the lone underclassman on the Oklahoman’s 2021 Super 5 lists.
In 2022-23 with Wasatch Academy in the National Interscholastic Basketball League he averaged 10.6 points and 3.0 assists while shooting 41 percent from the 3-point line.
This past summer he played on Nike’s EYBL AAU circuit, where he averaged 13.4 points for LivOn.
Johnson is another home-grown talent the Cowboys have been able to keep home.
That list includes current OSU freshmen Brandon Garrison (a McDonald’s All-American last year at Del City) and Connor Dow (Broken Arrow) were both Oklahoman Super-5 selections last spring. Senior Bryce Thompson was a two-time Oklahoma Gatorade Player of the Year and McDonald’s All-American at Tulsa’s Booker T. Washington. He started his college career at Kansas before transferring.
Oklahoma State lost its season opener against Abilene Christian, 64-59. The Cowboys are set to host Sam Houston on Sunday before traveling to the Legends Classic next week in Brooklyn.
