The Oregon Ducks got another major commitment on Friday morning, this time with a former player announcing that he would be returning for his final year of college eligibility in Eugene.

DJ Johnson, who played both defensive end and tight end in the 2021 season, said on his Twitter account that he has “#unfinishedbusiness” and wants one more go at it with his team.

After playing only tight end in 2020, Johnson flipped to the defensive side of the ball in 2021, where he had 18 total tackles and one sack, which came in game-sealing fashion against the Ohio State Buckeyes.

On Thursday when talking to the media, head coach Dan Lanning mentioned how important it was to find players who could play multiple positions, and he mentioned Johnson in the conversation. We now know how valuable Lanning thinks he is.
