The Notre Dame Fighting Irish picked up a big time commitment on Saturday when 4-Star wide receiver, Jordan Johnson, pulled the trigger and gave his verbal pledge to play in South Bend. The 2020 prospect went public on Twitter on Saturday evening:

“I would like to thank the man above for blessing me with the talents and blessings that I have today,” said Johnson. “I would like to thank all the coaches that have been in my life and developed me to be the player I am today. I want to thank my parents for everything that they have done for me and I couldn’t be more thankful for the people that I have in my life. Thank you to all my teammates that’s hanging with me through this process. Thank you to all my guys that stick with me through anything. Also, thank you to all the schools that believed in me and giving me the opportunity to play at their University. With that being said, I will be committed to the University of Notre Dame. Go Irish.”

Johnson is from St.Louis Missouri and was supposed to announce his commitment at the end of July (7/28) but he must have really enjoyed his official visit this weekend. The 6’2” 180 pounder chose the Irish over many schools including: the Michigan Wolverines, LSU Tigers, and Kentucky Wildcats.

Johnson is the 6th ranked wide receiver in the country according to the 247 Composite. Jordan is one of the best all-around receivers in the country and has no real weaknesses. He’s very smooth and runs a nice route which makes up for the lack of elite speed (although he is a fairly fast player). Some work in the weight room will help him get off of press coverage a little better — but that’s what Notre Dame hired Matt Balis.

Johnson is the 6th commitment in the 2020 class for the Irish, and are looking at a few more possible commitments this spring as official visit season is underway.

We will have more on Johnson’s commitment and what it means on One Foot Down soon.
