Three-star DB LaVonte Johnson Names OSU Among Final Six Schools

OSU is in the mix to land a big name from Houston.

Three-star Class of 2024 defensive back LaVonte Johnson, a 6-foot-2 safety from Houston’s North Shore, announced this week that he has trimmed his list from 20 to a dozen and named Oklahoma State among his final six along with Texas Tech, Purdue, Kansas State, SMU and Houston.

Johnson had 41 tackles and 14 passes broken up in 2022 to flash on the radar nationally as one of the most talented defensive backs in his class. The breakout season earned him a slew of offers, of which OSU was one back in January.

Houston as of now is the current crystal ball favorite to land him — which would keep him in his home town and allow him to play in the Big 12 — but OSU’s prioritization of him in recent months coupled with its space in the 2024 class could be enticing enough to keep the Pokes in the mix as he weighs his decision. Johnson also tweeted out he plans to make a commitment on the Fourth of July.

OSU has 11 commitments in its 2024 class and is expected to fill out several spots in the coming weeks. Of those 11, three — including three of the top four rated prospects — are safeties in what is clearly a major priority for OSU in the class.
