"I went up on a visit this past weekend and the guys were real nice and coach [Bruce] Weber is really good people," Johnson told Scout.com. "They've been recruiting me for a while."
"The guys were good," he added. "There's another kid that's also from St. Louis that goes there."
"It was really coach Lowry recruiting me," Johnson said. "He was at Carbondale recruiting me. Weber came to one or two games, but he wasn't recruiting me then."
Johnson was also excited to talk to a student that was involved with construction engineering at Kansas State. He said that conversation stood out to him.
"They are were taking me around their basketball facility and as I was going through the tour I talked to one of the guys that set up the events and he did construction engineering. They had planned and set up everything."
