On Friday, the Texas Longhorns landed a commitment from four-star safety Xavion Alford. Clearly, Tom Herman and his coaching staff are on a recruiting hot streak as they received yet another commit this week.

Four-star wideout Quentin Johnston was down to a handful of teams for his commitment. Those programs included Arizona, Baylor, Oklahoma, Texas and TCU.

Johnston had a plethora of 'Power Five' programs to choose from, but he ultimately decided to stay close to his hometown.

The talented wide receiver announced on Saturday that he's committing to Texas.

His decision was revealed on his Twitter account.

Check it out:

Johnston is the No. 69 overall recruit and No. 13 wide receiver from his class, per 247Sports. He's also one of the top recruits from the state of Texas.

Scouting expert Charles Power has compared Johnston to NFL wideout Martavis Bryant. That puts into perspective how explosive of an offensive player he can be.

With the recent additions of Alford and Johnston, the Longhorns have the top 2020 recruiting class in the Big 12. As for the entire of college football, 247Sports ranks it as the No. 6 class in the country.

Texas continues to prove that it can recruit with the elite programs in college football.
