May 17, 2023, 3:20 PM | Updated: Dec 19, 2023, 11:56 am

PROVO, Utah – Recruiting for a program like BYU football is a lifeblood. While people get excited about the upcoming season, coaches and staff will have a busy summer piecing together the future with the 2024 recruiting class and beyond.

Being in the Big 12 Conference, BYU wants to level up its recruiting efforts. It’s one of the reasons the official hashtag for BYU’s 2024 class is #RI2E4BOVE. That’s social media lingo for “rise above.”

Along with his offer from BYU, Johnson reports an offer from Washington State in the Pac-12. He also received an invitation to participate in Stanford’s camp this summer.
