Since Luke Fickell was hired, we’ve talked a lot about his ability to turn around the recruiting for the Cincinnati Bearcats. However, its high time we are reminded that Mick Cronin and his staff know their way around the recruiting trail as well.
That was on full display today, as the Bearcats landed 2018 point guard Logan Johnson.
Johnson is a four-star recruit according to Scout and a three-star player according to 247Sports. He is ranked as the No. 17 prospect in the state of California and the No. 32 recruit in the 2018 class by 247Sports. He announced the four finalists for his services in late August, naming UC along with St. Mary’s, UCLA and UC Santa Barbara. He received six offers in total along the way.
A 6’2”, 170-pound point guard, Johnson plays for St. Francis High School in Mountain View, California. He is the first hard commit for UC’s 2018 class. It’s a nice way to start.
