As a sophomore at Florida, Johnson averaged 14 points and 7.1 rebounds earning First Team All-SEC. Johnson was named as the 2020-2021 SEC Preseason Player of the Year before a discovered heart issue held him out of play.

Johnson committed to the Wildcats over Memphis, Nebraska, and Western Kentucky.

Standing at 6’5 and 230 pounds, Johnson looks to possibly start as a forward for head coach Jerome Tang and the Wildcats.

The commitment marks Tang’s eighth transfer for this season and 12th player on the 2022-2023 roster, leaving one scholarship spot left.
