Once thought to be headed out west, Stephon Johnson will be a Cowboy.

Johnson, a wide receiver out of DeSoto High School, announced his commitment to Oklahoma State on Wednesday morning. Johnson was committed to Oregon for about nine months before before the Ducks’ coaching change this offseason saw him reopen his recruitment.

A three-star prospect, Johnson is listed at 6-foot-2, 182 pounds. He is the No. 539 player in the 2022 class, according to the composite rankings, making him the No. 73 wide receiver in the class and the No. 75 player out of the state of Texas.

Johnson had a good amount of Power Five offers, including to the likes of USC, Oregon, Ole Miss, Penn State, Arkansas and others, but he chose the Cowboys.

OSU has a good solid pipeline to DeSoto High School. LD Brown and Jabbar Muhammad played at DeSoto and were on the Cowboys’ 2021 roster. Former corner AJ Green also played at DeSoto, as did former wide receiver Chris Lacy. The pipeline spans eras, too, as former OSU running back Tatum Bell played at DeSoto High School back in the day.

Although he finished his high school career at DeSoto, Johnson had moved around a bit before that. He played at Lancaster High (TX) as a junior in 2020, where he had 25 catches for 588 yards and eight touchdowns. He played at Houston Heights (TX) as a sophomore in 2019, catching 36 passes for 636 yards and nine touchdowns.

Johnson becomes the fourth wide receiver Kasey Dunn will bring in this cycle, joining four-star prospects Talyn Shettron and Braylin Presley and three-star standout Mason Gilkey.
