Photo: Texas Commit Sam Ehlinger Photobombs Deshaun Watson, Clemson Commit Hunter Johnson

2017 quarterback recruits Hunter Johnson and Sam Ehlinger may come from different places and have committed to different schools, but that hasn't stopped them from becoming great friends. 

Johnson, a five-star and the No. 2 quarterback in the country according to 247 Sports' composite rankings, is firmly committed to Clemson, while Texas holds a pledge from the four-star Ehlinger. Both are top-5 quarterbacks in the class. Both apparently have a sense of humor. 

That was evident Sunday when 247 Sports' Tom Loy posted this hilarious photo to Twitter of Johnson posing for a picture with Clemson star Deshaun Watson, only to find Ehlinger in the background throwing up the horns for an epic photobomb.

It's always cool to see how these young players develop relationships on the recruiting circuit. With so many camps and special events, there's plenty of time to bond. Johnson and Ehlinger clearly have.
