Johnson Going Through Process

Denzel Johnson has offers from the WCC, Big Sky and Big West conferences...

Denzel Johnson, 6-2 SG Fresno (Calif.) Clovis West, is a versatile prospect with an excellent feel for the game.

I spoke with Johnson recently and he gave me a list of schools that have been recruiting him.

"Santa Clara, UC Santa Barbara, Pepperdine, San Diego, Sacramento State, St. Mary's, UC Davis and UC Riverside are the main ones," said Johnson. "Everyone but St. Mary's and Pepperdine has offered."

I asked Johnson if he has a feel for which school is recruiting him the hardest.

"I'd say Santa Clara has been recruiting me the hardest," said Johnson.

Johnson talked a little about the issues he'll consider when choosing a school.

"I want to be in a nice area and get the best degree possible," said Johnson.

Johnson said he has in-home visits lined up in September with Santa Clara, Sacramento St., UC Davis and UC Santa Barbara. He said his GPA for the last semester was 3.5.
