Receiver Gilbert Johnson completes 'Florida Five' commitments for Texas

By

It’s been good to be Charlie Strong and the Texas Longhorns over the last few days.

The high-level commitments just keep rolling in.

* Texas got a commitment Thursday from cornerback Davante Davis.

* On Friday, at the Under Armour All-American Game, linebacker Anthony Wheeler committed (following in the footsteps of Malik Jefferson, another stellar linebacker).

* On Saturday, two more players committed during the U.S. Army All-American Bowl with top 5 tight end Devonaire Clarrington and defensive back Tim Irvin, the nephew of Hall of Famer Michael Irvin.

* On Sunday, the good news kept flowing with the addition of wide receiver Gilbert Johnson, who attends Georgia Prep Sports Academy in Atlanta.

The significance of Johnson’s commitment is that he is attended Homestead High in Miami and is the fifth member of what is being called the “Florida Five” to commit to Texas.

(Johnson originally signed with Georgia out of high school and also was recruited to Louisville by Strong before Strong left the Cardinals for Texas.)

The “Florida Five” all made their visits to Texas on Nov. 7 — Johnson, Davis, Clarington, Irvin and linebacker Cecil Cherry, who was the first of the group to commit when he did so last month.

Johnson is ranked among prep school players as the No. 7 receiver and No. 1 player in Georgia.
