The transfer portal announcements roll on, as today Texas A&M tight end Jake Johnson announced his intentions to enter the portal.
Jake is the brother of QB Max Johnson, who entered the portal late last month and has already committed to North Carolina. Given that the two were a package deal when they came to A&M, it’s logical to assume that Jake will end up in Chapel Hill as well.
Johnson was the No. 1 tight end in the country when he committed to Texas A&M as a member of the 2022 recruiting class. He barely saw the field in his fist season due to injury, before an injury to fellow class of 2022 tight end Donovan Green thrust Johnson into a prominent role in 2023. He appeared in all 12 games, catching 24 passes for 235 yards and four touchdowns. He’ll have three years of eligibility remaining.
Looking to 2024, Texas A&M is still well-situated at the tight end position, with 2022 starter Donovan Green assumedly returning from injury to take on the starting role. He’ll be supplemented by Theo Ohrstrom, Fernando Garza, Jaden Platt and 2024 commit Eric Karner.
This makes a total of eight Aggies in the transfer portal, with Jake joining DT Walter Nolen Micah and LT Overton, his QB brother Max Johnson, WR Ramond Cottrell. S Jardin Gilbert and O-Linemen Remington Strickland and Jordan Moko.
