VCU adds huge piece

Originally it looked like Melvin Johnson was headed to the ACC, instead he will take his game to the Atlantic 10.

Four-star shooting guard Melvin Johnson had a huge senior season as a commitment to the University of Miami. However Johnson and Miami went their separate ways, and that was good news for Shaka Smart and company.

The Virginia Commonwealth Rams hosted Johnson on a visit and got a commitment from the 6-foot-2 scorer shortly thereafter.

Johnson will bring an incredible ability to shoot the ball combined with solid decision making to give VCU someone who has all-league potential.

The visit to VCU was the only one that Johnson took since being let out of his letter of intent, and he is expected to enroll immediately.
