Four-star prospect Logan Johnson signs with UC
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Logan Johnson has signed a national letter of intent to attend the University of Cincinnati and play basketball for the Bearcats beginning with the 2018-19 season, head coach Mick Cronin announced.
Johnson, a 6-2, 170 guard from Mountain View, California, averaged 18 points, eight rebounds, five assists and two steals as a junior at Saint Francis High School, helping lead the Lancers to the Northern California Division II championship game.
A four-star prospect according to Scout.com, Johnson was listed among the Top 20 players in the Golden State and among the Top 150 players in the nation by 247 Sports and Rivals.com.
Johnson finished his junior season as the West Catholic Athletic League Most Valuable Player, the San Francisco Chronicle Player of the Year, the Cal Hi Sports Bay Area Player of the Year, a Mercury News First Team All-Bay Area selection, a Pangos All-American and a Cal Hi Sports Third Team All-State honoree.
“Logan is a great athlete and has a huge upside for a guard,” Cronin said. “Most guards are developed physically coming in, but Logan is still growing and filling out into his body. He has great quickness and ball handling skills. He is a tough competitor and really coming into his own as a player. Logan is also a solid person from a very close family. We are excited he is a Bearcat.”
Logan’s older brother, Tyler Johnson, is in his fourth season as a guard for the NBA’s Miami Heat.
