His grandfather wore the number when he played at LIU Brooklyn.
His head coach John Calipari attended his grandfather’s funeral, and my condolences go out to Johnson for his loss. He will be a joy to watch next year even as he is coming off the bench, which is still pretty remarkable to contemplate. Coach Calipari is going to have some serious size next year and it will be interesting to see if he stays with a high tempo or tries to slow things down a bit.
I saw Johnson play at the NHSI tournament in Bethesda and he is a throw back, back to the basket player.
He predicted after Montverde team won the high school national championship that he would win a national title the following year. Big Blue Nation will be glad to hear that prediction, but games are played on the court and not on paper.
It has been a pleasure covering Johnson here at Rant Sports Prep, and I will definitely be keeping an eye on how his career progresses. If you have any suggestions feel free to comment below or hit me up on twitter
