Mustang (Okla.) four-star athlete Jacobe Johnson revealed his top five schools of Alabama, Michigan, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Stanford on Wednesday night. The 6-foot-3, 180 pound prospect also announced that he is committing on Aug. 13.
Johnson is the No. 85 overall prospect and No. 3 athlete in the 2023 On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. On3 ranks him even higher as the No. 39 overall prospect and No. 2 athlete in the 2023 On300. Both rankings rate him as the No. 2 player in Oklahoma.
Johnson has visited the Sooners six times, more than any other program in his recruiting process. Additionally, he has taken official visits to all of his finalists except for the Cowboys. However, Oklahoma State received two unofficial visits from the four-star recruit.
According to the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine, Oklahoma has a commanding lead to land Johnson’s commitment at 86.5%. The team with the next-highest odds is the Crimson Tide at 4.6%
RPM was released to the public in December. The On3 engineering group teamed up with Spiny.ai to create the industry’s first algorithm and machine learning-based product to predict where athletes will attend college.
It factors in machine learning, social sentiment, visits and historical trends. However, expert predictions are still a big piece of the RPM equation.
Johnson has an On3 NIL Valuation of $117K. The On3 NIL Valuation is an index that looks to set the standard market value for both high school and college-level athletes. The NIL valuation does not act as a tracker of the value of NIL deals an athlete has completed to date. It rather signifies an athlete’s value at a certain moment in time.
