Four-Star Guard Jeremiah Johnson Commits to Oklahoma State

Jeremiah Johnson is coming home.

Johnson, a four-star guard in the 2024 recruiting class, announced his commitment to Oklahoma State on Saturday. Listed at 6-foot-4, 180 pounds, Johnson spent time at Putnam City City North and Norman North before leaving the state’s borders last season to play at Wasatch Academy in Utah. Johnson will play this upcoming season with Phoenix Prep in the Overtime Elite League.

Johnson also held offers to Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, TCU, SMU and others.

“I chose Oklahoma State because it just feels like home to me,” Johnson said. “I have a great connection with the coaching staff up there, and I know so many people already at the school — not just basketball, on the football team, soccer team and also just students there. It’s right up the street from my house. It’s a 40-minute drive. It’s close enough for my family to come to watch me.

“And also just the connection that me and OSU have had over the past five years is the reason why.”

ESPN and the 247Sports Composite system lists Johnson as a four-star prospect. He is the No. 141 player in the country, according to the Composite rankings.

Johnson played with LivOn on the Nike EYBL circuit this summer, where he averaged  13.4 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 17 games, shooting 47% from the field and 36% from 3-point range.

Oklahoma State and Mike Boynton were the first program to offer Johnson, doing so all the way back in July of 2020. TCU was his most recent offer, coming July 6 of this year.

Johnson’s story is unique from most high school prospects. After being his first offer, OSU has stayed with Johnson through him being a victim of a shooting to reclassifying to leaving the state. That type of commitment to him is a big reason why Johnson is now committed to Oklahoma State.

“That was the biggest thing for me also, just showing that everything I’ve been through they’ve been fully invested no matter what it was,” Johnson said. “That just shows a lot that they just invested in me more than basketball, me as a person, too.”

Johnson becomes the Cowboys’ first commitment in the 2024 class. Being a one-man class, Johnson pushes OSU’s class to No. 6 in the Big 12 (a Big 12 that includes Arizona, Arizona State, Utah and Colorado and excludes Oklahoma and Texas).

“They’re getting somebody that’s humble, that has great character, that’s going to come every day and just be an overall good person — not just on the court but off the court whether that’s in the classroom or on campus,” Johnson said. “Just someone that’s gonna get the job done and also somebody that’s going to be an NBA player one day.”
