The Oklahoma Sooners received their fifth commitment for the class of 2015 in the form of three-star safety Jamile Johnson (Dallas, Texas. South Oak Cliff) who is the nation’s No. 478 recruit, No. 29 safety and No. 55 prospect in the state of Texas.

The Sooners offered Johnson on Oct. 5 when he was on an unofficial visit and committed to Oklahoma over offers from the Nebraska Cornhuskers, Texas Tech Red Raiders and Arkansas Razorbacks, among others.

Jay Boulware and co-defensive coordinator/defensive backs coach Mike Stoops served as Johnson’s primary and secondary recruiters, respectively.

His best attribute is his closing speed, ball skills and is a sound tackler, but needs improvement in his read and recognition skills and develop his instincts for the position.

Oklahoma loaded up at the safety spot in the 2014 class with three incoming freshmen headlined by four-star recruit Steven Parker. Jordan Thomas and Vontre McQuinnie were both three-star recruits out of Texas.

With the addition of Johnson, the Sooners now have the No. 12 ranked class in the nation and the No. 4 class in the Big 12 conference.
