COMMIT FACE! Mandatory Credit: Phil Sears-US PRESSWIRE
And the beat rolls on. Kevin Johnson from Cincinnati Summit Country Day has committed to the Bearcats. Johnson will hold a press conference at his school at 3 PM this afternoon. So this isn't official, more of a foregone conclusion. When Johnson announces he becomes the second commit in the Bearcats class of 2013 after Troy Caupian who jumped on board late on Friday.
Johnson is a versatile play maker. He is listed as a combo guard and plays as the lead guard for the Silver Knights. More than likely Johnson will wind up as a shooting guard in the Bearcats four guard offense. What I like about Johnson is that he has a good handle, can get into the paint almost at will and can shoot the Basketball. As a bonus he is a good rebounder for a guard. In last years state title winning season Johnson averaged 14-7-3 and 2.
Cincinnati was a newcomer in the Johnson sweepstakes, only offering in mid May. Minnesota was his other big 6 offer but he also had an offer from mid Major power Creighton as well as Bowling Green. Johnson is a great addition to the Bearcats class of 2013. With Johnson and Caupian in the fold Mick Cronin will have three more scholarships to play with.
