Johnson, a 6’1″, 182-pound guard, is a graduate transfer from Rutgers, where he averaged 11.3 points per game in 2016-2017.

An explosive scorer, Johnson had five 20-point games last season, including in both Rutgers games in the Big Ten Tournament.

Before playing at Rutgers, Johnson played two seasons at Kansas State.
