Charlie Strong blasts Daje Johnson for drug dealing song

Earlier this summer, Texas Longhorns wide receiver Daje Johnson decided to show off his rapping ability by releasing a new song.

WATCH: Freshman Malik Jefferson With a Big Hit on RB Daje Johnson During Spring Game

The thing about big name recruits is that just because they were superstars in high school does not mean they are going to be superstars in college.
