On Wednesday afternoon, three-star linebacker Myles Johnson decommitted from the Alabama Crimson Tide.

The prospect from the class of 2025 committed to the Tide in November of 2023 and is now reportedly leaning toward the Florida Gators.

While Johnson isn’t a five-star athlete coming out of high school, the linebacker could be exactly who Steve Sarkisian and the Longhorns need to round off their defensive line.

According to 247Sports, Johnson has earned a four-star rating after a productive junior season alongside an impressive track resume.

Johnson, who visited the Gators at the beginning of June is already 220 pounds, at just 6 feet tall, but can move his larger frame incredibly quickly, recording an 11.15 in the 100-meter dash.

While Texas has yet to offer Johnson a spot with the Horns, Sarkisian might want to reconsider reaching out to the prospect.

Texas has an impressive linebacker room already but they’re all reaching the end of their collegiate eligibility and bolstering the troops with an elite recruit from the class of 2025 could be the start of rebuilding the position over the next few years.

Johnson, who is from Alabama, currently has an 89.9 percent prediction of him landing at Florida, according to On3, and 247Sports’ Crystal Ball experts all have him ending up with the Gators as well.

Sarkisian could really stir the pot by recruiting Johnson to his squad, especially as the Longhorns enter the SEC and visit the Gators in 2024.
