    Looks like he got an offer too judging from a David Woods retweet.

    Saw Brad watching OBC at the AAU event in late April at Fishers Fieldhouse. Johnson switched over and played for Martins Wolverines last week during the Ohio State AAU tourney and tore it up....

    Kevin Johnson- PG Martin Wolverines: One of the best PG in the state suited up for the Wolverines this weekend. Johnson showed his athleticism and quickness while using his ability to get shots off the dribble to knock down long jumpers.

    Kevin Johnson scouting report

    Good prospect with a solid but beatable offer list currently. Would be happy to see him as a Butler Bulldog.

    RE: Recruiting Notes

    You're right Mr. X

    Offers: Butler, Xavier, Cinn, Cornell, Creighton, Davidson, DePaul, Minnesota, Seton Hall, Albany, Lehigh, Manhattan, Ohio, St Josephs

    Interest: Dayton, Delaware, St Johns, Tenn, Wake Forest, West Virginia, Wisconsin.

    Just a guess on my part but Xavier might be the school we have to beat out for him.

    There is a Rivals article for Insiders that has Johnson talking about his favorites. If anyone has access to that please post. It's from last month though. I would imagine things are changing rapidly for Kevin Johnson especially after his performance at the Ohio State AAU event. If the staff is really high on Johnson it might be wise to get a commit from him before July(when more coaches can see him).

    If you're moving posts, I had linked a Rivals article on Johnson about a month back in the general thread.

    Really like what I've read on Johnson. Sort of reminds me of Shel. I'd be ecstatic if we'd be able to land him.

    It'd be interesting to see what he has to say about the offer, visit, timetable, etc. if you'd be able to interview him, butlerway.

    I'll certainly try. I haven't had very much luck the past few weeks. I do have one lined up with Miroslav Jaksic though, which should be interesting, even if the odds aren't great that he ends up at Butler.

    Here is an article Scott Burgess did on June 5th. That last paragraph where Johnson talks about what he is looking for has Butler written all over it....[hr]

    This is a report on his play at the Pittsburgh Jam Fest in April....

    You never want to be the school that while on a visit confirms another school was the right place - but who knows what happened/what will happen.

    That article that I linked above by Burgess mentions that Johnson had visited Cincinnati a few weeks before. Was planning on seeing VCU and Minnesota later in June. He had been to Seton Hall. I think when he mentioned location being important, that might have been the deciding factor for him. Cincinnati kid going to Cincinnati. I wish him the best.

    This 2013 PG recruiting is developing a whole life of it's own. Next up Hallice Cooke?

    Real question is whether they continue going on down the line of PG's if Cooke doesn't come or if they hold onto the scholarship and hope for a decent transfer to come out of next season. At this point, I think it's a bit unrealistic to expect either Sina or Jackson to come to Butler.

    Not that they've reached it yet, but at what point does ending Jaylon Brown's recruitment become a mistake?

    Huh I kind of thought Johnson was going to end up at either Cinci or Xavier but even I could have never predicted this was going to happen. It does appear though Butler has been after him for a while but we did just really hear about him out yesterday so there’s probably a couple more legitimate options that none of us know about currently for 2013 PG spot. Nevertheless assuming Cooke does come on a visit later this week I really hope the staff makes him the main priority.
