"I found out shortly after school," he said. "My dad pulled me out of the car and he said that Hawaii just offered me. We started crying. After all the blood, sweat and tears, and hard work of getting me recruited, to get the first offer was a dream come true."
The 5'11, 160-lb Johnson had some help from a contact who got the film to the Warriors.
"Coach Norm Chow saw the film and from that, he just said that he saw my intangibles, technique, my three-step, five-step were all solid and they wanted to be the first to jump and offer me."
Then Johnson had a chance to speak with one of the coaches.
"I got to talk to Coach Demarest. He said they wanted to see me come out for camp in Hawaii, which we're going to be down there for and I'm looking forward to seeing it."
He will have some time to get himself mentally prepared for those, but he admits concentrating on other tasks for the rest of Tuesday was hard.
"I just got out of a choir concert and I was forgetting words to songs. Surreal is how it feels. All the years of hard work I put into it is unfolding in front of our eyes. It's a blessing."
