News broke Tuesday that Nevin Johnson would not be a part of the Creighton basketball program going forward.
Johnson, a 6-foot-5 wing, apparently made his decision following Monday's individual meeting to discuss the previous season and future with Coach Greg McDermott.
Johnson's first attempt to crack the rotation following a redshirt year was slowed by an ankle injury shortly before the season began. When Johnson did return, his share of the minute distribution was scarce, playing 6.6 minutes per game in 24 appearances. Johnson did log 18 and 19 minutes, respectively, in consecutive losses to Illinois State and Northern Iowa last season. Johnson tied his season highs with nine points and four rebounds in the three-point loss to the Redbirds in Omaha.
He averaged 2.2 points and one rebound per game in his final year as a Bluejay. Wherever he lands, Johnson will bring an impressive combination of size, strength, and athleticism, which was displayed on a couple highlight-reel dunks last season.
The Houston native had not responded to an interview request as of Tuesday evening.
