Washington has been named a finalist for Fairfield (Calif.) Armijo defensive lineman Jericho Johnson.

The 6-foot-4, 300-pound defender revealed his final four on Thursday, a group comprised entirely of Pac-12 (for the time being) schools. Johnson will pick between Washington, Oregon, USC, and Utah. He has yet to set a firm commitment date, but 247Sports’ Brandon Huffman says the expectation is he won’t commit until after the calendar turns to November.

Johnson took an official visit to UW back in June — the only official he made during the summer. Per Huffman, he plans to take officials to each of his other three finalists in the coming months.

A 4-star prospect in the industry-generated 247 Composite, Johnson ranks as the No. 18 defensive lineman in the 2024 class and the No. 15 prospect from the state of California. Overall, he’s sitting at No. 124 in the national player rankings.

As a junior last fall, Johnson was credited with 36 tackles, 15 tackles for loss, and nine sacks across eight games.

UW currently holds 12 known commitments in its 2024 class. Johnson would become the highest-ranked of the group, if he were to give his pledge to the Huskies. You can see his highlight tape below, via Hudl:
