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.

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.
