Former UNLV commit Carlos Johnson has reopened his recruitment and is eyeing a trio of Pacific Northwest schools, reported by ESPN's Jeff Borzello Monday morning.
Former UNLV commit Carlos Johnson has set up three visits: Boise State (4/29), Oregon State (5/6), Washington (5/13).— Jeff Borzello (@jeffborzello) April 25, 2016
The Findley Prep three-star swingman announced his verbal commitment to Nevada-Las Vegas back in September, but it was reported on April 16th that Johnson decommitted amidst the UNLV coaching turmoil.
Johnson is a 6'4", 220-pound small forward with a relentless motor and a team-first attitude. Johnson can be an instant impact wherever he chooses because of his play style that relies upon effort and hustle.
Although only 6-4, Johnson has a knack for rebounding the basketball and playing underneath. He has a thick frame that can wear down opposing frontcourts and a surprisingly smooth touch around the basket.
Boise State, Oregon State and Washington all have holes to fill in their lineups after the losses of the following key players:
|Player||Production||Reason for Leaving|
|Boise State, Anthony Drmic||13.4 PPG, 1942 career points||Graduation|
|Boise State, Mikey Thompson||11.9 PPG, 3.8 APG||Graduation|
|Boise State, Lonnie Jackson||38.6% 3-pt FG %||Graduation|
|Boise State, Montigo Alford||14.4 MPG||Graduation|
|Washington, Dejounte Murray||16.1 PPG, 6.0 RPG, 4.4 APG||NBA Draft|
|Washington, Andrew Andrews||20.9 PPG, 40.1% 3-pt FG %||Graduation|
|Oregon State, Gary Payton III||16.0 PPG, 7.8 RPG, 2.5 SPG||Graduation|
Boise State currently has three open scholarships for the 2016-2017 season after the departure of junior forward James Webb III and scholarship offer to former walk-on James Reid.
