Alex Johnson Commits To NC State

Alex Johnson, a graduate transfer from Cal State Bakersfield, announced today that he will play for NC State. Johnson has one more year of eligibility and can play immediately.

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.
