OSU fans have been waiting to hear if Johnson, a wide receiver from DeSoto, Texas, would pick the Cowboys over SMU, and the fanfare at his ceremony was captured in a video Shawn McFarland of The Dallas Morning News shared. shared on Twitter.

Johnson became one of three signers to join OSU’s Class of 2022 on Wednesday. The Cowboys also received national letters of intent from defensive lineman Seleti Fevaleaki and offensive lineman Davis Dotson. The group includes another Oklahoma signee in Dotson, and the additions of Fevaleaki and Johnson bolster the recruiting pipelines of two familiar locations in Stillwater.

Meet the three new Cowboys, who are listed in the order they signed.

Dotson brings the number of Oklahomans in the Cowboys’ class of 2022 to nine.

247Sports Composite lists Dotson, who committed to OSU on Monday and signed two days later, as the No. 19 recruit in his class at Oklahoma. As a senior playing Class 3A football, he contributed to a Berryhill team that finished the season with a 6-1 district record and advanced to the quarter-finals of the playoffs.

High School: Centennial High School (California)

Rating: Three-star rookie, according to 247Sports Composite

Fevaleaki isn’t the first cowboy football player with Snow College experience.

Star running back Jaylen Warren played there before continuing his career at Utah State and OSU. Defensive linemen Sione Asi and Nathan Latu also competed for Snow College before coming to Stillwater. The Cowboys have been successful in recruiting from Utah, and Fevaleaki could continue that trend.

Fevaleaki, a redshirt junior, also received offers from schools including Nebraska and Missouri. Although OSU’s defensive line lost seasoned players Jayden Jernigan and Israel Antwine on the transfer portal, Fevaleaki is a new face who brings experience to the group.

Stephon Johnson Jr.

Position: wide receiver

High School: DeSoto (Texas)

6 feet 2 inches, 182 pounds

Rating: Three-star rookie, according to 247Sports Composite

Johnson originally committed to Oregon, but as the Ducks transitioned to a new coach in the offseason, he changed his mind and re-opened his recruiting.

After narrowing his school roster to OSU and SMU, he picked the Cowboys on national signing day. Johnson follows Tatum Bell, Chris Lacy, AJ Green and Jabbar Muhammad as De Soto High School’s next Cowboy.

As a senior at DeSoto, Johnson had 436 receiving yards on 46 catches and seven touchdowns, according to MaxPreps. He also had 50 rushing yards and 118 special teams yards for a total of 604, according to his MaxPreps profile.

The Cowboys fire plenty of receivers — including Brennan Presley, Jaden Bray, the Green Twins and John Paul Richardson — and Johnson can add depth to the young but talented receiving corps.
