Commitment Status Undecided on College Choice

There is a definite Badger connection in Johnson's recruitment as his aunt, Faith Johnson Patterson, starred for the Wisconsin women's team in the early '80s. But Johnson had to survive his own scary moment -- collapsing on the court with a heart condition -- when he was 14 to even reach the point he's at now. It's remarkable to think that a young player just a few years removed from having a heart defibrillator put in can excel as a high major college basketball prospect, let alone be one of the most athletic and bouncy point guard prospects the midwest has produced in some time.

Another family member, sister Tyseanna, was a big-time recruit in her own right and chose Iowa State, where she will be a freshman this fall. Her decision could play a role in where Johnson chooses to attend school because the two are very close. Wisconsin has been scouting Johnson since 2011. He has already teamed with Reid Travis and Sacar Anim to win back-to-back AAA state titles for De La Salle. His best early offers prior to Wisconsin were Creighton, Iowa State, Minnesota, Penn State and UCLA, but he's also hearing from Cincinnati, Kansas, Marquette, and Michigan State, of which the latter two are the most recent top schools to offer.

Johnson recently set official visit dates in September and October for three of his top suitors: Minnesota, Wisconsin and UNLV. The Badgers get his second visit on Sept. 20.
