Editor's Note: An update on Texas' 2024 recruiting class
Five-star shooting guard Tre Johnson committed to Texas on Wednesday.
A top-10 prospect in the 2024 class, Johnson was one of the landscape-changing prospects still left on the board. Now that he’s committed, Texas has jumped into the top-10 classes, and it sits at No. 3 in the SEC—remember that Texas is switching leagues starting next season.
Published at the beginning of the singing period, our SEC exploration has changed significantly in the last few days.
Johnson takes over as the top dog, and as the best shooting guard, best scorer, and best pro prospect.
There’s no better bucket-getter in the class than Johnson. Once ranked as the No. 1 prospect in the class, Johnson still checks in at No. 6.
In all likelihood, he’s going to be able to come in and score immediately, especially after some time in the weight room.
As long as Johnson adapts to the college game well in year one, his time in Austin should be short.
He oozes pro potential when combining positional size and length with his scoring ability. Another positive is that Johnson still looks slight. There’s still plenty of upside in terms of physical development.
Texas has a strong case for having the best backcourt now as well. At the very least, it has best-backcourt potential when both Johnson and Cam Scott are operating at their best.
