Bo Nix brother Tez Johnson announced he is entering the transfer portal on December 20. Tez is the adopted son of Patrick Nix.
Tez Johnson is the wide receiver of Troy Trojans and played the last game for them on December 17 against UTSA Roadrunners. He became part of the Nix family during high school.
Bo and Tez went to Pinson Valley High School and were coached by their dad Patrick Nix. If Tez announced he was entering the transfer portal last night, then Bo announced that he would continue his stay at the Oregon Football team two days ago.
Johnson is younger than Nix by two years and has three more siblings, with the youngest, Caleb also being a football player at Clemson.
Bo Nix Brother Tez Johnson Is A Troy Wide Receiver
Bo Nix brother Tez Johnson is a sophomore at Troy University and is part of the NCAA Division I with Troy Trojans.
Standing at 5ft 10, Tez Johnson is the wide receiver at Trojans. He attended the same high school as Bo, Pinson Valley High School. Tez was born to Shamika Posey and became part of the Nix family during his sophomore year of high school.
At Pinson Valley, with Patrick Nix at the helm, Tez was able to lead the side to State Championship as a junior, and in his senior year, Pinson reached the semifinals.
At Troy, he played all 11 games as a freshman and ranked fourth in his team for per-catch average. In 2021, he had a breakout game against Southern Miss with 10 catches and became part of Troy history with a reception total equalling eighth most in a season.
Tez is available on Instagram with the username @tezmania15, with most of his posts dedicated to his field of work. Though he might now be recognized as part of the Nix family, Tez has not forgotten about his biological mother Shamika.
He shared a photo of her and Krista (Bo Nix’s mother) on his Instagram handle, saying he was blessed to have two mothers in his life.
With Tez deciding to enter the transfer portal, many football fans have encouraged him to join Bo at Oregon.
Tez Johnson Joined Nix Family In High School
Tez Johnson became part of the Nix family during his sophomore year at the high school.
The American football coach introduced him to his family and quickly Tez was able to blend in with his four siblings, two of which are also collegiate football players.
Tez calls Patrick Nix his dad and is a regular feature on Krista Nix Instagram handle, Patrick Nix’s wife. Krista shared a sweet birthday message for Tez on his 16th birthday in 2018 as she wrote that not only has he been gifted with athletic ability but also with humour and an amazing heart.
In 2019, Krista shared a gallery of images as Tez committed to Troy University with Patrick and their two children also present in the ceremony. Earlier this year on May 18, 2022, Tez celebrated turning 20 as Krista and Patrick along with his sister came to pay him a visit at Troy Univerisity.
Tez had the opportunity to train with his dad at Pinson Valley High School as Patrick was the coach at the time. And in 2020 Patrick moved to Phenix City Central High School.
His move to Phenix allowed him to stay in touch with Tez as he opted to play for the Trojans that year. During his stay at Pinson, Patrick won the Class 6A state championships in 2017 and 2018 with Bo as the quarterback.
