On Sunday night, Marcus Relphorde was not the only Indian Hills Junior College player that BigPurpleNation.com confirmed had an offer from TCU. Starting power forward Delvon Johnson also has an offer from the Frogs for the 2009 recruiting class. Besides the interest from TCU, Johnson is also getting attention from Missouri, UAB, Wisconsin, Illinois State, Southern Illinois, and Wyoming.

The Chicago native originally chose Western Illinois out of high school, but after averaging only 3 points and 4 rebounds a game in limited action his freshman year, Johnson decided to transfer to Indian Hills. Hills has benefited from Johnson's play starting the season 21-1 and going 2-0 in conference.

"I just didn't fit in well there (W. Illnois)," said Johnson. "The atmosphere here is crazy. Everywhere around here, people love basketball. We have a lot of dedicated fans."

At 6'9, 220 pounds, the power forward is averaging 10 points and close to 10 rebounds a game for the 3rd ranked Warriors.

"My basketball IQ has definitely went up since playing here," said Johnson. "I'm also a lot more explosive. I don't have a problem stepping out and knocking down a jumper."

Along with teammate Marcus Relphorde, Johnson is being recruited by Coach Billy Wuczynski.

"He is telling me that I would be a good fit there and that I could come in and help the program right away," said Johnson.

Johnson will have three years to play two. As a senior, he averaged 16 points and close to 9 rebounds a game for Bloom Township in the Chicago area.
