Charlotte, NC – Head Men's Basketball Coach Dion Lansdale is pleased to announce the addition of Chris Johnson for the 2013-2014 season. Johnson will attend JWU in the fall, majoring in Sports, Entertainment, & Event Management, and joins his high school teammate, Kyle Cooper in signing with the Wildcats.
A guard from Allen D. Nease High School in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, Johnson averaged 13 points, 3 assists, and 3 steals per game during his senior year. Johnson helped lead his team to the school's first district championship since 2004. They advanced deep into the playoffs, making a sweet 16 appearance.
Johnson was named All-Conference, and led the area in steals. He was also named Jacksonville Times-Union First Coast Honorable Mention and St. Augustine Record Honorable Mention.
Coach Lansdale said, "Chris is a solid combo guard from a very good high school program at Allen D. Nease High School. Coach Scott Cooper does a great job with the players he coaches. Chris is fundamentally sound; he plays hard, and has a great attitude. He will help us build the program to the level we want to be."
