National Signing Day 2012: Thomas Johnson Recruiting Announcement Time, TV Schedule And More

It's National Signing Day 2012, and Thomas Johnson, a consensus 4-Star recruit, will announce his decision this morning, live on ESPNU at 9:20 am, as to where he plans to play college football next season. Johnson, who played for Skyline High School in Dallas, Texas, will likely choose between Oregon, TCU, Texas A&M, and Cal.

The 6'0, 180 pound receiver is the fourth ranked WR in the nation and the 34th ranked player overall, according to Rivals, and famously de-committed from Texas earlier this year. He caught 59 passes for 1,077 yards and 13 touchdowns his senior season, and has been compared to the Colts' Reggie Wayne in style and size.

Though he was verbally committed to Texas for nearly a year, the relationship became frayed. At the time he de-committed, a source told ESPN: "Genuinely I think he just wants to see some other universities. Wherever he goes they are definitely getting a dynamic impact player," the source said. "Thomas is a kid that could line up and play safety or corner too. He is the type of kid you see in a program once every 10 years."

Oregon fans will be on the edge of their seat awaiting this announcement.
