John Tyler’s Traven Johnson Commits to Texas A&M-Commerce

John Tyler defensive back Traven Johnson has committed to Texas A&M-Commerce. (Christopher Vinn,

John Tyler’s talented 2013 class had its most recent commitment occur Sunday night.

Defensive back Traven Johnson announced his commitment to Texas A&M-Commerce on his Twitter account. A&M-Commerce is a Division II program competing in the Lone Star Conference.

Johnson, a 6-foot-1, 175-pounder, made 49 tackles in 2012 from his cornerback spot, where he finished third for John Tyler with three interceptions. Johnson broke up a team-best eight passes and also recovered one fumble.

Johnson played a key role for a John Tyler defense that picked off 19 passes and broke up another 27 in 2012, which ended in a 13-2 season for the Lions, who reached the Class 4A Division I state semifinal round.

Classmate Fred Ross, a receiver, is committed to Oklahoma State, though he went on an official visit to Mississippi State a week ago. Justice Liggins, also a receiver, has committed to SFA, while defensive end Tyus Bowser has a list of Division I FBS football offers, plus one Division I basketball offer from Oral Roberts. Quarterback Greg Ward is committed to Houston.

Several other John Tyler seniors, including linebacker Richard Gipson and Darion Flowers, are likely to sign football national letters of intent on Wednesday, which is National Signing Day.
