Longhorns commitments Collin Johnson and Demarco Boyd will be early enrollees

The Longhorns will get two of their top commitments on campus in the spring.

Four-star wide receiver Collin Johnson and three-star linebacker Demarco Boyd have both signed financial aid papers and will be early enrollees at Texas, according to Texas. Both players will be on campus at the start of the spring semester. 


Beginning his career at UT has been a long time coming for Johnson, the No. 15 wide receiver in 2016. His father, Johnnie Johnson, was a standout Texas defensive back and his brother, Kirk Johnson, is currently a freshman for the Longhorns. 

Johnson actually committed to Texas at the same time his brother did while on a trip to UT on April 17, 2014. 

He tore his labrum in early September, which he had surgery on, but said that he wil be ready to go during the spring. 


It's also been a long tme coming for Boyd to join the Longhorns as his brother, Kris Boyd, is a freshman for UT. 

Boyd, who is listed as the No. 53 outside linebacker in 2016, will likely play linebacker for the Longhorns. But he an do a bit of everything for Gilmer, where he was coached by current UT tight ends coach Jeff Traylor up until this season.

The 6-foot, 215 pound Texas commit was able to scoop a loose ball and return it 25-yards for a touchdown on defense in Gilmer's 45-19 win over Canton. He was also able to pound his way into the endzone with a 7-yard run as a running back.
