Ohio State Has Reportedly Offered Pitt Transfer Guard Cam Johnson

The Buckeyes are reportedly one of many teams who have sent a scholarship offer to Cam Johnson, a guard who has transferred from Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh transfer Cam Johnson has a lengthy offer list and Ohio State is one of the teams on it, according to reports. 

Corey Evans of Rivals reported that the Buckeyes, along with a number of other schools, have sent an offer to the 6-8, 210 guard, who is a graduate transfer and is therefore eligible to play immediately.

Johnson, who will graduate and transfer out of Pitt following the spring semester, told Brendan Quinn of, however, that Michigan has not extended an offer yet

Johnson averaged 11.9 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists while starting all 33 games last season for the Panthers. The Moon Township, Pa., native shot 44.7 percent (127 of 284) from the field and 41.5 percent (78 of 188) from three-point range last season as well. 

His freshman year of 2014-15 was cut short due to a shoulder injury, which led to a redshirt. He then averaged 4.8 points, 1.8 rebounds and 0.5 assists across 32 games in the 2015-16 campaign. 

Johnson will be a fourth-year junior next season, meaning he has two years of eligibility remaining.

Pitt finished with a 16-17 overall record and a 4-14 mark in ACC play this past season in Kevin Stallings’ first year as head coach of the Panthers.
