Joe Johnson, 5-9 JR PG Gardena (Calif.) Serra, told us he has three programs at the top of his list.

"I like Cal, they're probably the leader along with Stanford and Oregon," said Johnson. "But those schools haven't offered yet. UC Davis did just offer recently.

In addition to those schools, Johnson said he's also hearing from Washington, Washington State and a little from USC.

"Then there are some schools back east, like Oklahoma and Georgetown, that are sending mail," said Johnson. "But I'd rather stay in the west if possible."

We asked Johnson if any coaches have been out recently to his games.

"Both Cal and Oregon sent assistant coaches to games," said Johnson. "Stanford was supposed to come, but I don't know if they made it out."

Johnson is a very good student. Previously, he told us he had a 4.5 GPA and scored 1250 on the SAT.

Johnson said he's averaging about 14 points and seven assists per game this year.
