Alabama lands top prospect with four-star player RJ Johnson
Tuscaloosa, Alabama - Following an official visit last weekend, four-star high school combo guard RJ Johnson has decided to stay in-state and play basketball for the Crimson Tide.
Johnson, who stands at 6-foot-2, is a power player ranked as the best high school recruit in the state of Alabama, and the 21st best guard in the nation.
"It feels like home, and I've dreamed of playing there since John Petty," Johnson said as announced his decision to become part of the Crimson Tide on Instagram Live.
"It means a lot having Alabama on your chest and being from there makes it mean more for you. Like, you have to put on for your state."
"Roll Tide!" he said at the end of an Instagram video post, stating he is "10000% committed."
As a junior, Johnson earned a third team Class 7A All-State selection after averaging 16 points, 6 rebounds, and 2.4 assists for the 24-6 Tigers.
In his three high school seasons thus far, the talented athlete has accomplished the milestone achievement of scoring over 1,000 points - a taste of success only elite players of the game accomplish and very few achieve before the start of their senior season.
Johnson picked Alabama over final scholarship offers from Georgia, Florida Atlantic, Wichita State, and Tulane.
