Interest picks up for Johnson

This season Stanford signee Reid Travis was the popular recruit out of Minneapolis (Minn.) De La Salle. Next year, it'll be 2015 point guard Jarvis Johnson.

Jarvis Johnson, a standout at Minneapolis (Minn.) De La Salle, is becoming a highly pursued point guard in the 2015 class.

Already, Johnson claims scholarship offers from Minnesota, Iowa State, Penn State, Marquette, Texas Tech, Gonzaga and Creighton. Michigan State, Kansas, UCLA and Purdue are also heavily involved.

"Right now I'd say it's a little early to really know where I want to go," Johnson told Scout.com. "But before I pick I want to make sure it fits my style of play of getting up and down the court."

"My game is just athletic point guard that can get out in open court and finish in transition," Johnson added. "In half court set, running plays for my team and getting everyone involved."

Johnson has taken early unofficial visit to Minnesota and Wisconsin.

"You could tell they are picking up a lot of chemistry on the court," Johnson said about Minnesota. "I really like coach [Richard] Pitino. He's young and knows what he's doing. I like their squad."

"They actually remind me of playing at De La Salle," Johnson said about Wisconsin. "If I did decide to go there, playing there would be something I'd get used to with the style of play."

Despite all the attention and two early visits, Johnson said it's too early to have a favorite.

"At this point, no favorites," he said.

A four-star recruit, Johnson is ranked No. 71 overall and as the No. 12 point guard in the 2015 recruiting class.
