The Toronto, Canada, native visited NC State on May 18, and has his former traveling team coach Ro Russell living in the area. He also considered Florida State.
"Johnson is a very quick and skilled player, who can really handle the basketball and create off the dribble," Russell said. "He has really good shooting ability. I coached him in AAU in Canada, and since he's gotten to Cal-State Bakersfield, he has gotten bigger and more mature."
No matter what he's able to contribute from a scoring perspective, he makes NC State's point guard situation a lot less worrisome.
1: Brown / Johnson / Raymond
2: Wood / CJW / Raymond
3: CJL / Harris
4: Howell / Mega Horse
5: Painter / Vandenberg
Johnson gives the Pack some added flexibility in that they now have a veteran who can play the two if Mark Gottfried is so inclined, which would allow Scott Wood to spend some time at the three, where perhaps he's more comfortable.
