It doesn’t seem as if Jeremiah Johnson will end up in Stillwater after all.

Johnson on Tuesday requested his release from his national letter of intent to Oklahoma State, according to multiple reports. Pistols Firing confirmed that Johnson has, in fact, done so. About a month ago Johnson reaffirmed his commitment to the Cowboys despite OSU firing coach Mike Boynton, the coach who recruited Johnson, and hiring Steve Lutz.

But since Johnson reaffirmed that commitment, OSU has added four guards via the transfer portal in Arturo Dean (FIU), Davonte Davis (Arkansas), Brandon Newman (Western Kentucky) and Khalil Brantley (La Salle). That’s on top of Bryce Thompson and Jamyron Keller already being on campus. With Johnson exiting, Lutz has three scholarships still to fill on his first OSU roster.

Johnson has jumped between a three- and four-star prospect in his recruitment. He is the No. 136 player in the 2024 recruiting class, according to the 247Sports Composite ranking. OSU was his first offer, coming back in 2020 before he committed to Boynton’s Cowboys this past September and signed in November. He also had offers to TCU, SMU, Arkansas, Oklahoma and others. Johnson was the only incoming freshman OSU had, meaning Lutz might not have a freshman on his first OSU team unless he picks up one of the few uncommitted 2024 prospects left over the next few months.

Johnson played in the Overtime Elite league this past season, averaging 18.7 points a game, making him the league’s sixth-leading scorer. He also averaged 4.9 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.5 steals a game. An Oklahoma native, Johnson played at Putnam City North and Norman North before going the prep route the past two seasons — first at Wasatch Academy in Utah and most recently at PHHoenix Prep in Arizona.
