"I'd really like to get some offers," said Johnson in response to what he is looking for in the Pangos All-American Camp.

So far Johnson's only offer is from Cal State Northridge, but he says he's also had some Pac-12 schools, including Stanford, looking at him.

"I'd really like to go to Stanford," said Johnson. "They have really good academics to fall back on and I love the school."

Johnson's teammate at Mater Dei five-star recruit Stanley Johnson, is one of the top prospects for the USC Trojans' squad. Although the class of 2016 is still a few years away, the Trojans could be looking at Jayce as well. Stanley's mother Karen could be heard cheering on Jayce throughout his first game of the camp on Friday night.

And the one thing Johnson wants to work on?

"Shooting," said Johnson. "And maybe dribbling a little bit too, so if I don't grow anymore I'll have something like Kevin Durant."
