Johnson Is One Of NYC's Top Unsigned Scorers

Reporter Brian Towey has a detailed report on the individual game and the recruiting process involving Christ The King senior Sean Johnson, who is among the best players from the New York City area ...

Sean Johnson, a 6-foot-2, 175-pound shooting guard/small forward from Christ the King (N.Y.) High School, is one of New York City's top uncommitted seniors.

The athletic finisher thrives in the transition game, with excellent foot speed in the open floor. Johnson is a slasher with good lateral quickness and body control, a quick first step, and the ability to explode to the cup.

Johnson plans on waiting until after the season to put serious thought into his recruitment.

"I'm not considering anybody right now," said Johnson. "Most likely in the spring I'll narrow it down; I know I'm going to get more offers."

Johnson claims offers from Fordham, Quinnipiac, Robert Morris, North Carolina A&T, and Manhattan. George Mason has shown interest, and recently evaluated him. He took an official visit to Quinnipiac in the fall.

"I think he's been a little overlooked," said Christ the King interim coach Joe Arbitello. He's got all the tools: he passes well, defends, handles, scores, rebounds- what more could you want from a player?"

Johnson scored 32 points in a 62-45 win over CHSAA rival St. Raymond's on Sunday. Christ the King is 9-1 following a strong showing at the Bojangles (N.C.) Shootout before the New Year, where they logged wins over D.C-area programs Bishop McNamara and Bishop O'Connell to win the national bracket.

Johnson ran with the New York Gauchos in AAU.
