Add another target to the list.
A 6-foot-3 guard, Johnson averaged 13.5 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.7 steals per game this season. The redshirt junior is an elite 3-point shooter, converting 41 percent of his triples, despite taking six per game.
The list of programs involved for Gardner-Webb transfer Nate Johnson include Maryland, Xavier, Oklahoma, Arizona, USC, Georgia, GTech, USF, ECU, FAU, Colorado State, Loyola, & Towson, he tells @RivalsPortal— Corey Evans (@coreyevans_10) March 19, 2020
Johnson’s school-produced bio says he is an “explosive athlete with great shooting range well beyond the three-point arc … Shoulders high expectations on the defensive end as well and is one of the team’s most active defenders.”
Assuming Johnson is on track to graduate in four years, he should be able to play immediately at his new school and have one year of eligibility. The Wildcats sure could use his 3-point shooting.
Other transfers Arizona has been connected to include:
- Columbia grad transfer Mike Smith, the Ivy League’s leading scorer
- Virginia Tech’s Landers Nolley
- Wichita State’s Jamarius Burton and Erik Stevenson.
