Daje Johnson Commits To Texas Longhorns

Texas takes Daje Johnson from TCU.

Daje Johnson, a top recruit out of the Austin area, has committed to the Texas Longhorns, according to ESPN. Johnson had been committed to TCU for over a year, but his heart appeared to be with the Longhorns. He holds more than 15 BCS scholarship offers, and is a consensus four-star recruit. Johnson was one of TCU's top recruits, and this is a major loss for the Horned Frogs.

Johnson is 5'9, 185 pounds, and has excellent athleticism. He'll likely contribute as an all-purpose back at Texas.

SB Nation's excellent Texas site, Burnt Orange Nation, has more on Johnson:

Though Johnson could end up on either side of the ball in college, Texas appears to be looking at him as a player who could fill a similar role to DJ Monroe, though Johnson's skill set is probably closer to former 'Horn Ramonce Taylor as a guy who can work as both a wide receiver and a running back.
