Maybe we should have known this was coming?
It's going to be a good day for recruiting #StartTheDayOffRight

As first reported by Josh McCuistion of SoonerScoop.com, Oklahoma added the fifth member of their current 2015 class late Friday morning in the form of 6’1″ 190 pound defensive back Jamile Johnson (Dallas, TX).
Johnson was one of OU’s earliest 2015 offers back in early October when he visited Norman during the weekend of the TCU game. Johnson also reportedly holds offers from Arkansas, Nebraska, Texas Tech, and Washington State among others.
While he plays primarily cornerback for his South Oak Cliff squad, on film Johnson looks like a guy who could also have the capability to play safety at the D-I level. He’s also very much in the mold with Mike Stoops’ now well known preference for bigger, physical corners. The younger Stoops long been known to covet guys for his secondary that can not only defend the pass, but also hold up in run support.
Unfortunately, there is no available film we could find that allowed us to easily embed here in the post. But you can check out Johnson’s Hudl highlights here.
Hope to have more from K and the other guys soon, but with this news just now breaking we wanted to get something up quick just to make you all aware.
UPDATE: Bob wanted to weigh in as well.
