Jeff Walz needed an elite post player in the Class of 2016.
And the University of Louisville women's basketball coach has scored just that with Ciera Johnson.
The 6-foot-4 Johnson is considered one of the elite players at the center position and picked the Cardinals last month over Texas, Texas A&M and Baylor. She has signed and is official.
Johnson averaged 14.9 points, 9.5 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 3.2 blocks and 1.2 steals a game as a junior at Duncanville, one of the elite programs in the country. She shot 57 percent from the floor as a junior.
She is ranked No. 15 by ESPN.com and No. 33 by ProspectsNation.com.
