Fans barely have had time to celebrate the great 2014 Oklahoma Sooners recruiting class and it is already time to talk about the 2015 class. According to Fansided on Feb. 14, the latest Sooners recruit is three-star safety Jamile Johnson from Dallas.

This is Oklahoma's fifth recruit for the 2015 college football recruiting class.

Johnson is a safety who chose the Sooners over the Nebraska Cornhuskers, Arkansas Razorbacks and Texas Tech Red Raiders. Rivals ranks Johnson as the 31st best safety in the 2015 class and the 43rd best recruit from the state of Texas.

"When I decided I was ready to commit, I called coach Boulware first and let him know," Johnson said. "Honestly I think when I called he was asleep or something, his voice was low and then I told him I had some good news and he got excited."

Johnson said that he also talked to head coach Bob Stoops, who told him that he believed he could be an All-American at Oklahoma. Johnson will attend Junior Day on March 1 and said that is when he will start to learn if he will remain a safety or maybe switch over to the cornerback position for his college career.

Johnson said that he can play a rover, both safety positions, cornerback and outside linebacker. He seems like he is fine with whatever defensive coordinator Mike Stoops decides to use him as. He said he would like to play corner but will do whatever is best for the team.

Jamile Johnson joins a 2015 Oklahoma Sooners recruiting class that also includes four-star offensive lineman Bobby Evans, four-star defensive tackle Marquise Overton, four-star offensive lineman Josh Wariboko and three-star defensive tackle Du'Vonta Lampkin.
