Kentucky offers Pitt transfer Cam Johnson

You’re looking at Pitt transfer Cameron Johnson, and according to Rivals’ Corey Evans, he now has an offer from Kentucky. The redshirt sophomore guard recently got his release from Pitt and because he’s actually a grad transfer, would be eligible to play right away. Wherever he goes, he’ll have two years of eligibility remaining.

The 6’8″ 210 lbs. Johnson averaged 11.9 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists last season for Pitt, shooting 44.7% from the field and 41.5% fromĀ the three-point line. According to Evans, he also has offers fromĀ Florida, Ohio State, Texas, Michigan, Arizona, Iowa State, South Carolina, Baylor, Ole Miss, Marquette and TCU.

Here are some highlights to tide you over until the wakeup post:

    I like what I see from this kid. Has 3 years of college-level experience in the ACC. We really, really need that experience.

    Sounds like Cal is offering all of those shooting guards discussed and whoever decides to commit first gets the spot.

      Applies healthy pressure on the athletes to make a decision early so Cal isn’t scrambling for a guy in June. Good strategy.

    One observation: How is he a redshirt sophomore? He played 3 years at Pitt and was a 2014 signee.

    Okay. Never mind. I see he was a medical redshirt after playing in 8 games his freshman year, and then suffering a shoulder injury.

    I would temper expectations on this kid. He’s not a good athlete, is marginal offensively, terrible defensively, and not good on the boards. He has no discernible high level skill to mold. He’s a 9th/10th guy in the rotation.

      Regardless of where he goes YOUR opinion of his play is less than wortthless.

      Yes, because Cal sucks at identifying talent and always ends up with guys who fit that profile. SMH

      If he is a 9-10 guy off the bench then the KSR whiners/Cal haters should be tickled to death.

      Honestly, I think FBI Informant’s comments may be a LITTLE too tough (I think he’ll be more like a 7-8 guy in the rotation), but I wouldn’t expect this guy to come in and be a major factor. I obviously trust Cal and his evaluation of the kid, but I’m sure that is what he is probably expecting too. EVERY kid doesn’t have to be a superstar or even starter. Guys like this will give us some good experience, possibly leadership, and heady plays. I’m thinking maybe a similar value as Julius Mays? Except unlike Mays he won’t be expected to CARRY the team most of the year.

      I don’t think Johnson is expected to come in and be The Man or anything. But a guy who has been on a D-1 roster for 3 years, and with the ability to play as much as needed, could be just the glue guy this freshman dominated team will need next season.

      He would start from day one. The kid averaged 12ppg in the ACC and hit nearly 80 threes in 33 games at 42%. (Just to compare–Monk hit 104 in 38 games at 40%). Btw- he took the third most shots per game on his team. This will be his FOURTH year in college. Proven experience > Freshmen.

    Heck i would like my 9th or 10th guy to average 11 a game



    • NcCatFan75

      He won’t average 11.9 here. There is only 1 ball. He was the best player at Pitt, which won’t be the case here.

    Cameron Mills was a great athlete either but would you have denied him? Let Cal do his job

    That last video isn’t him. That’s Camron Johnson, not Cameron Johnson. He’s known for being a 4 star WR prospect in the 2018 class. We should add him too though lol.

    The best player at Pitt this past season was Jamel Artis.
