Former 5-Star WR Tyron Johnson Transferring From LSU To Oklahoma State

Tyron Johnson, a former five-star wide receiver recruit who originally chose to play at LSU, appears to be headed to Oklahoma State. Johnson hinted at the transfer on Twitter Friday with a photo of the school’s mascot – Pistol Pete. NOLA.com is also reporting the move.

Johnson, who was ranked as the best player in the state of Louisiana for the class of 2015, was granted his release from LSU just last week, according to NOLA.com. He tallied nine receptions for 150 yards and two touchdowns in his freshman year. He was supposed to be starting his sophomore year with the Tigers this fall.

Instead, per NCAA transfer rules, he’ll be forced to sit out a season. That means that in 2017, he’ll resume play as a junior.

Johnson, who is from New Orleans, stands at 6-foot-1, 190 pounds. He had offers from 25 schools – LSU, Texas Tech, Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, California, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Miami, Michigan, Mississippi State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Oregon, San Diego State, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M, Tulane, UCLA and Utah.
