Junior Update: Zach Johnson

Zach Johnson, a young big man from Sacramento, is drawing interest from a number of programs around the country...

Zach Johnson, 6-8 JR C Sacramento (Calif.) Natomas, told us last night that he is receiving interest from Cal, Marquette, Texas A & M, UCLA, San Diego St., Utah, Gonzaga and Oregon.

Johnson said he doesn't have any leaders at this point and he's going to take his time with the decision. He plans on taking several trips before choosing a school.

When questioned about how he'll make his decision, Johnson said, "I'm going to visit the schools and see what they have to offer. I might stay in the west, but I'm open to going somewhere else too."

Johnson said early playing time is not a primary consideration for him. "I'm not looking to start right away," said Johnson. "I know freshman don't always play a lot."

Johnson plans on playing with the Oakland Soldiers in the spring and summer. He said he's doing ok academically and is planning on taking the SAT soon.
