Four-star guard Robert Johnson (Richmond, Va./Benedictine Prep) has come a long way in the past year. This time a year ago, he had only some mid-major scholarship offers, and he fondly recalls his first offer.
"I still remember when (UNC Greensboro head coach) Wes Miller offered me a scholarship,” Johnson said. “I was so excited."
These days, Johnson is one of the fastest-rising and most sought-after recruits in the country thanks to strong performances this spring and summer on the travel circuit playing for Boo Williams, the powerful AAU program out of Virginia.
