Johnson confirms season-ending injury

2016 Texas commit four-star wide receiver Collin Johnson (San Jose, California) confirmed that he suffered a season-ending injury.

Johnson said he tore his labrum which he had surgery on Sept. 18 to repair.

“It kills me that I can’t finish off my senior season with my brothers,” he tweeted.

Johnson plans to come to Texas in the spring as an early enrollee.

“[I’m enrolling early] so I can go get settled in,” Johnson said early this year. “And so I can start on my school work and compete for a position.”

Johnson is the No. 4 wide receiver in California, No. 14 in the country at his position and checks in at No. 82 in the Scout 300.

The 6-foot-4, 194-pound senior wide receiver said the injury shouldn’t hold him back from spring practices at Texas.

“Also I’ll be ready for spring ball for anyone worrying about this effecting me in college,” Johnson tweeted.
