Johnson commits to Minnesota
Richard Pitino added another piece to the puzzle on Friday. Jarvis Johnson, a local standout at Minneapolis (Minn.) De Le Salle, verbally committed to Pitino and his staff at a press conference at his high school. Johnson took an official visit to Minnesota last week. Pitino also went in for an in-home visit this week as well. Johnson had narrowed his list of schools to five. It also included Baylor, Wisconsin, UNLV and Wichita State. Johnson, a 6-foot-1 guard, gives the Gophers an outstanding perimeter class that also consists of Kevin Dorsey, a top 100 prospect, and talented shooter Dupree McBrayer. Jonathan Nwankwo, a 6-foot-9 big man, is also on board with the Gophers in 2015. Minnesota’s recruiting class ranks among the top 20 classes in the country.
