One of the nation’s more talented wideouts has garnered an offer from the Texas Longhorns. On Sunday evening, Saint Louis (Mo.) DeSmet wide receiver Jordan Johnson took to Twitter to reveal his latest offer.

Johnson is regarded as the top prospect in the state of Missouri, according to 247sports composite rankings. The four-star recruit holds well over 20 offers from programs such as Alabama, Florida, LSU, Ohio State, Penn State, and Texas A&M.
Notre Dame is currently considered to be the frontrunner.
Johnson’s Texas offer came just a couple days after fellow Saint Louis (Mo.) prospect, Trinity Catholic wide receiver Mookie Cooper, decided to decommit from the Horns after making a verbal pledge just weeks ago while visiting the Forty Acres for junior day.
For anyone asking or putting their own twist to it.. yes I am de- committed from the University of Texas. This was a tough decision but my family and I feel it is in my best interest. #AGTG— Mookie Cooper (@uheardof5) March 8, 2019
It’s something about the talent in Missouri that catches the eye of Tom Herman and his staff, as they have offered a number of prospects and found ways to acquire multiple players from the state over the years.
At 6’2, 180 pounds, Jackson is ranked as the nation’s No. 34 prospect, the No. 6 wide receiver in the country, per the 247Sports rankings. As a junior, Johnson caught 26 passes for 655 yards and nine touchdowns.
