Clemson’s football recruiting continued at a rapid pace through what was a busy June when it added a second four-star wide receiver to its 2023 class.
Noble Johnson, a 6-foot-2, 205-pound prospect from Rockwall, Texas, announced via Twitter that he was signing with the Tigers. He is ranked No. 369 overall and 48th in his position by the 247Sports Composite. Clemson moved up three spots to ninth in the team standings following Johnson’s decision.
Johnson is the fifth player (and second from Texas) to announce for Clemson in the past six days and gives the program nine commitments for the current recruiting cycle. Offensive tackle Ian Reed (of Austin) is the other Texan to be announced recently for the Tigers.

The Tigers now turn their attention to Monday’s announcement of Jamal Anderson, the No. 173 prospect and No. 11 linebacker from Hoschton, Georgia. He has Clemson among his favorites.
Johnson’s decision-making process was quick after receiving his offer from Clemson on June 2. He picked the Tigers over runners-up Tennessee, Mississippi and Arkansas. Its other offerings include Michigan, Southern California, LSU, Baylor, Texas A&M, Purdue, Miami, Washington, Pittsburgh and Mississippi State.
“I had a checklist in my head of everything I wanted in a school, and there were some things I didn’t even know I needed,” Johnson told On3.com. “Clemson laid out everything in front of me, everything I wanted, and my parents saw it and loved it. I don’t have the words to express what a great place Clemson is (and) it was a no-brainer. “
Johnson caught 49 passes for 875 yards and eight touchdowns last season and joins receiver Nathaniel Joseph as the two committed receivers for Clemson’s current cycle. Joseph (from Miami) is ranked No. 105 overall and 16th in his position. He was the first to enroll in this class on September 10.

Turner, from Birmingham, Alabama, is the brother of former Clemson safety Nolan Turner, who recently signed a free agent contract with Tampa Bay. Randall suffered a torn ACL during training in April.
