With Johnson now signed up, the Tigers now have 16 commits from the 2024 class. LSU’s class ranks second in the SEC on 247Sports.
LSU also added a commit from the transfer portal recently. The Tigers gained a pledge from former Marshall safety Andre Sam on May 18.
Kelly led LSU to the SEC Championship game in his first year in Baton Rouge. Kelly picked up key wins over Ole Miss and Alabama in year one.
Although LSU did not take home the conference title, it won its first bowl game under Kelly after facing Purdue in the Citrus Bowl. The Tigers won 63-7 to secure a 10-win season.
Johnson can be seen dominating offensive linemen in his highlight clip. Here are some of the better plays from his junior season:
