NORMAN — Oklahoma officially added another NCAA Division I transfer — its second in less than a week — Monday, when the school announced former Arizona defensive back Cortez Johnson's move to Norman.
Johnson played one season with the Wildcats, starting two games and recording 16 tackles. He had a career-high seven tackles against Washington.
In Arizona, he played for coach Mike Stoops and defensive coordinator Tim Kish, who are now both on the Sooners' staff.
“Cortez is a player that is familiar with the system run by Mike Stoops and Tim Kish from their time together at Arizona,” said OU coach Bob Stoops. “He's got good size for a corner and we feel that he's the type of player that can provide strength in our defensive scheme.”
Johnson (6-foot-2, 196 pounds) is from New Orleans.
Last week, the Sooners announced the addition of receiver Jalen Saunders, who was an all-conference selection at Fresno State.
