The weekend of Oct. 4 continues to be the gift that keeps giving for Oklahoma. It was on that weekend when eventual signees five-star running back Joe Mixon and four-star wide receiver Michiah Quick both made their official visits.
It was another unofficial visit for four-star safety signee Steven Parker. But not to get lost in the shuffle of the Class of 2014 was OU starting to make some moves for the 2015 class.
One of those early offers has now turned into a commitment as Dallas South Oak Cliff safety Jamile Johnson confirmed his commitment to the Sooners on Friday morning.
Johnson, a three-star prospect, is 6-foot and 180 pounds and first caught the eyes of the OU coaches back in the summer. He was told then that as long as he showed up to OU sometime during the season that he would get the offer.
He picked that weekend and was offered. Johnson is ranked No. 35 at safety and also had offers from Nebraska, Texas Tech and Arkansas, among others.
Johnson is OU’s fifth commitment for the Class of 2015 and the first non-linemen of the group. OU’s first four commits had been either offensive or defensive linemen.
