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.
