First-year Oregon coach Willie Taggart has Oregon at No. 6 in the 2018 recruiting rankings, and his success on the recruiting continued with the addition of offensive tackle Justin Johnson.

The 6’7, 355-pound prospect from Philadelphia announced his decision on Monday.

Johnson thanked God, his family and his coaches for helping throughout the recruiting process.

“Thank you to all the coaches who’ve recruited me and extended me a scholarship and saw my potential,” Johnson said. “It was a true honor getting to know you all.

“With that being said, I will be furthering my academic and football career at the University of Oregon!”

Johnson chose Oregon over offers from Wisconsin, Michigan State, Vanderbilt and Boston College among others.

He is only the third offensive lineman to commit to Oregon for the Class of 2018, but Willie Taggart has the Ducks trending in the right direction.
