Major QB target Avery Johnson reveals commitment date, final three
Avery Johnson, the 4-star quarterback from Maize (Kan.), has cut his list of suitors down to a final three. He announced on Saturday that he’ll reveal his commitment live on CBS Sports HQ from his high school on July 5 at 1 p.m. PT.
Both Oregon and Washington have made the cut for the talented signal caller, along with Kansas State. The Wildcats can sell proximity to home, but the Ducks and Huskies have long been major threats for the 6-foot-2, 170-pounder.
I will be committing July 5th at 3pm CT at Maize High School. Anybody is welcome. It will also be on CBSSPORTS🔥 pic.twitter.com/ua5qJnADy1

Johnson rates as a 4-star prospect in the industry-generated 247 Composite. He’s the 12th-ranked quarterback in the 2023 class and the No. 1 player from the state of Kansas. Washington got the first official visit from Johnson, followed by a trip to Eugene, and then an official to Kansas State.
The Wildcats are trending here after a strong showing during his final official.
Oregon is said to be closing in on 5-star quarterback Dante Moore. However, the Ducks have been very high on Johnson throughout the recruiting process.
Washington has offers out to eight quarterbacks in the 2023 class, but four have committed elsewhere so far and a fifth, Jaden Rashada, recently cut UW from his list of finalists. After not signing a quarterback in the 2022 class, expect new head coach Kalen DeBoer wants to find one in 2023.
Johnson’s Hudl tape lists quite the gaudy stat line: 2,550 passing yards, 1,080 rushing yards, 20 passing scores, and another 22 rushing scores. You can view his highlight tape below, via Hudl:
