6'9 looks big and strong. I like him and have never seen him play.

Those numbers would look good in Purple and Orange (even at a 2/3 discount)

Yes he would look good in a Evansville jersey but would he play? We all know Martys track record with jucos.

Definitely looks strong in the Pic and the teams showing interest is a good sign. Haven't seen any footage of him, but definitely good numbers and 6'9 is good. The only negtive I see is the JUCO factor...which acesfan1 said above.

At 6'9 he would be big enough to play center which would be a big help to us.
8-19 .....1986

21-8 .....1988 --- NIT
25-6 .....1989 --- NCAA
Key point, be patient, never judge a coach on Year 1!

So what's the negatives on Johnson? His highlights video for both years shows he has a lot of offensive skills, is very athletic and has a lot of jumping ability. Most programs in the country is looking for this type of player but his recruiting profile show only mid-majors are showing interest in him. Either college recruiters all over the country are blind as a bat or there are closets we don't know about.

Here's another problem. He's more of an open floor player who can do a lot off his talent. If he came to UE his role would probably be to set picks for guards cutting through the middle.

I agree that he seems to be a very talented and intriguing big man; but to answer your question: He is a JUCO with only two years of eligibility to learn Marty's system - a lot of discussion on this board about the low percentage of JUCOs at UE that have had an impact. Another negative would be he only has a 2.8 GPA at a junior college - so keeping him academically eligible could be an issue.

On the positive side, this would address a need for a big man and spread out the scholarships where they are not all in the same class(s). We certainly need a big guy that could be an impact player.

Looks like he has or will take it official visit to UW Milwaukee: https://mobile.twitter.com/JucoRecruiting/status/831210258185990144

Bradley has a recruiting thread on him over the last month as well: http://www.bradleyfans.com/vb/showthread.php?t=26778

I was more questioning why there were not more schools showing interest in Johnson. Makes me wonder.
