Darin Johnson, 6-4 SR SG Sacramento (Calif.) Sheldon, is one of the elite shooting guards in the west for 2013. Johnson has a strong body, good athleticism and nice stroke with range to 18-20 feet. He had a very good showing in July and a number of programs have now extended scholarship offers.

"I'm hearing from everyone in the Pac-12 other than UCLA and Stanford," said Allen. "Then I'm also hearing from Texas A&M, Marquette, UTEP, San Diego State and Gonzaga. They've all offered, except for UCLA, Cal and Stanford."

I asked Johnson if any schools stand out for him at this time.

"Probably Texas A&M, Marquette, USC, Oregon State, Oregon, Washington State and Washington," said Johnson.

Johnson said he has a couple official visits lined up.

"I'm going to San Diego State on August 31st," said Johnson. "Then I go to Oregon on September 14th. I have a home visit with Marquette on September 9th."

I asked Johnson if he has a time frame in mind for making his decision.

"I'd like to decide by November," said Johnson. "It's possible that I'll decide before November. I want to cut my list down to seven schools by next week when school starts."
