Keldon Johnson Commits to KENTUCKY

Keldon Johnson has picked Kentucky over N.C. State, Maryland and Texas.

The five-star 6’6″ Oak Hill Academy swingman is considered the No. 2 shooting guard in America and the No. 14 player overall by the 247 Composite Rankings.  Johnson is the second member of John Calipari’s 2018 recruiting class, joining point guard Immanuel Quickley.

Recruited by Joel Justus, Johnson’s stock soared following this summer’s Team USA Junior National Team Mini-Camp.  According to 247’s Jerry Meyer, the physical slasher took his game to another level when he brought an improved jump shot to Colorado Springs.  There’s impressive highlights to back-up that statement.

But wait, THERE’S MORE!  This time from the 2017 Nike EYBL.

Welcome to the BBN.

      Super excited to get this kid. Looks to have a bit of alpha to his game. Could play a major role if he picks up the system early.

    Sounded like the decision slipped about three minutes early. “Keldon, Never thought I’d see you in Kentucky blue!”

    Can he shoot? Not being a smartass I honestly don’t know the kids game that well. He’s described as a slasher… what’s his 3P%?

    1. IAmTheDanger

      I’m with you man, I know very little about him except he has been climbing in the individual rankings. Definitely a top 10 get!!

    2. TBW3011

      It says he has an improved jumper. I’m guessing that means shooting isn’t a strength.

    Who next !

  9. Kat4Life

    Huge get
