The Thunderbird High (Ariz.) 6-foot-6 forward committed to Arizona almost immediately after Wildcats coach Lute Olson put forth a scholarship offer this past weekend at the Advanced Skills Camp.
Johnson may not be considered a big-time athlete, but he'll give Olson and the staff a quality shooter who could be a successful four-year program guy.
One of the things that attracted Olson is Johnson's versatility.
"They mentioned that," Johnson told Cat Tracks of the possibility to play some minutes at power forward. "I have to get bigger and stronger. I need to get in the weight room a little more. If I get stronger it is definitely a possibility."
Johnson came into the camp with a purpose: To play well enough to receive the elusive offer.
"I felt really good about the way I played," Johnson said. "It was a good experience. It went really well."
