Brandon Johnson, a 6'9 forward from Brunswick CC, has set two official visits this weekend prior to making a decision on where he plans to play for the 2021-22 season. Johnson saw his stock explode at the All-American JUCO Showcase Invitational during the July live period in Atlanta, GA in front of nearly 300 college coaches. He received a variety of offers and also received interest from Maryland, Florida, and many other high major programs.
Johnson will visit East Carolina this Friday/Saturday and will visit Old Dominion on Sunday/Monday. Once Johnson's visits are complete, he will make his final decision. Either program will be getting a skilled and talented forward with a massive amount of potential. Due to the extra year of eligibility given by the NJCAA and NCAA, he will still have four years to play at the D1 level. Johnson was coached by Walter Shaw at Brunswick CC.
JucoRecruiting.com's Cody Hopkins spoke with Johnson about his upcoming visits.
