Keldon Johnson reads to second graders on week off

The basketball team has the week off before returning to school for classes next week. While cruising Twitter for news this morning, I stumbled upon these pictures of Keldon Johnson reading to second graders at South Hill Elementary in his hometown in Virginia:

For someone who’s such a killer on the court, Keldon sure is a softie off it. Good on ya, kid.

This sounds like a great excuse to watch Keldon’s highlights from the Bahamas again:

    Love to see this in our players. There are a lot of people that take shots at Cal and our program, but you would be hard pressed to find anything better in college hoops.

    Another example of Cals recruits and why he doesn’t recruit other 5 stars

    Cal always recruits the nicest dudes.

    I’ve always said Cal doesn’t get the credit he deserves for the caliber of kids he recruits and what he teaches them about giving. I don’t see any other coaches raising money and doing what he does and I don’t see many of the other blue blood schools NBA players giving back likes ours do either. This is what makes Kentucky so special.

    When we play UNCheat in Dec, he could read to the. Tar Heels at halftime…and they could probably get credit for it.
    Have to get a 1st grade primer though.

    I laugh loudly when I hear uneducated haters that we just roll out the ball to a bunch of thugs. Our players are amazing people on and off
