As the Texas Longhorns continue to evaluate junior college prospects early in the cycle, Independence CC defensive end Jermaine Johnson received an offer on Friday:

The 6’4, 245-pounder is originally from Minnesota as a member of the 2017 recruiting class. At The Opening Chicago Regional camp in 2016, Johnson ran a 4.85 40-yard dash, a 4.44 shuttle, and a 33.5-inch vertical leap at 213 pounds.

After ending up in junior college, Johnson now has offers from Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Louisville, and Utah. He’ll be a December graduate and currently reports a 3.5 GPA. Texas would benefit from landing an instant-impact contributor in the 2019 class with four defensive linemen set to graduate after hte 2018 season.

During his first season in Kansas, Johnson recorded 58 tackles, eight sacks, and three fumble recoveries.
