Kelshaun Johnson

Hurricane Beryl and weather delays due to power outages around Houston and Southeast Texas have pushed back many of the scheduled commitments from prospects in the area in the last few days.

There has been a very legitimate late push in this recruitment for Texas with the speedy four-star wide receiver from Hitchcock (TX) High School, Kelshaun Johnson, this week. Texas has been in consistent communication with Johnson in the last few days, making things interesting in this recruitment with the leading Texas A&M Aggies.

Texas A&M made a lot of noise in this recruitment in the last month or so. Entering the summer, it looked like the Longhorns were the frontrunner in the race to land a commitment from Johnson. There was a point this summer when Texas was very close to getting Johnson in the boat in the 2025 class.

But the Aggies made the pitch to Johnson during his official visit that he could have early playing time and a clearer path to the field in College Station compared to his opportunities in Texas's WR room.

Johnson is now scheduled to announce on July 15. Texas making this big of a late push for Johnson has reportedly given him something to think about entering his decision early next week.

Among the two or three expected decisions by mid-July for Texas's wide receiver targets for this cycle, Johnson is an important one to watch who could realistically still end up in this class for the Longhorns.
