2016 SF Carlos Johnson commits to Washington

Former UNLV signee Carlos Johnson ended his recruitment, as the Findlay Prep small forward has committed to Washington.

Washington added to its 2016 recruiting class on Thursday, picking up a commitment from Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep small forward Carlos Johnson.

"Next year I'll be attending the University of Washington," Johnson told Scout.

The 6-foot-4, 235-pound three-star prospect originally signed with UNLV but asked out of his Letter of Intent following the Rebels' coaching change.

After narrowing his list down to Washington, Oregon State and Boise State, Johnson picked the Huskies.


"I just feel like it's a great fit for me," Johnson said. "Coach (Lorenzo) Romar has done some great things and has a lot of players in the league. I trust him and his vision he sees in me to prepare me for the next level and also to prepare me to be a better man."

Johnson's bond with the coaching staff and team played a big role in his decision.

"It's just like a family," he said. "It was like we already knew each other. We were already a family and it felt like we already knew each other for years."

Johnson will join Markelle Fultz and Sam Timmins as part of a Washington 2016 recruiting class that he has high expectations for.

"We want to win the Pac-12 and hopefully win a national championship," he said.
