Texas Tech snags a 2018 WR.

Texas Tech can never have enough wide receivers. In a pretty predictable commitment, WR Treveon Johnson has committed to Texas Tech.

He’s a class of 2018 WR/DB that projects to WR at the next level. He’s only a junior, but already has some solid highlight tape out there.

He’s an incredibly physical outside threat at WR. He’s only a sophomore in his highlight tape, but he’s still outmuscling defensive backs for deep balls and running over people in the short game. He has the physicality that he’ll need to survive in the Big 12 as an outside WR, he just needs to prove consistency after he sat out his entire freshman year with an injury.

In 2015 Johnson caught 28 passes for 610 yards and eight touchdowns and rushed 19 times for 155 yards and four touchdowns. He’s a force all over the field. If I had to pick a playstyle comparison, I’d say he plays similar to Larry Fitzgerald of the Cardinals.

He’s our first commitment in 2018, and it looks like he’ll be a good one.
