Texas WR makes Big 12 commitment

Last season, Houston Chavez tight end Harold Turnage became the first athlete to earn a Division I-A scholarship from the east Houston school.
Turnage committed to Texas A&M in January, and 2008 prospect Jarvis Smith committed to Baylor in early spring, becoming the second Lobo to head to the Big 12.
Coach Mike Jackson was proud to announce that his third athlete had made a verbal commitment to another Big 12 school on Friday.
"(Wide receiver) Jamaal Johnson just committed to Kansas today," Jackson said. "He was waiting for his first offer and wanted to get out of the way to concentrate on football. Kansas was that team who stepped up."
Johnson was a first-team, all-district selection as a junior and led the league in touchdown receptions.
"Jamaal uses his size very well when going up for the ball and catches the ball away from his body," Jackson said. "He's very physical and when he gets the ball in his hands he doesn't go out of bounds. He puts his head down and runs downhill to get another three to four yards."
With Johnson and Smith committed to Division I schools, 2009 prospect Michael Brockers seems to be the next big thing Chavez. The 6-foot-5 defensive end has verbal offers from Texas A&M and Houston to date.
Johnson had 387 yards receiving and eight touchdowns as a junior with an average of 18.4 yards per catch.
