Elite 24 Highlights: Johnson was one of the final selections of the 2012 Under Armour Elite 24 and one year later was arguably the nation’s top player. Johnson scored 11 points in the last game held at Venice Beach, but the next year at DUMBO is where he really made his mark. He was named team MVP along with Emmanuel Mudiay after leading Team Bed Stuy to a big comeback that just fell short, 114-109. He finished with 25 points.
Post Elite 24: Johnson was the first player to ever start on four California state championship teams at the highest level and earned 2014 Cal-Hi Sports Mr. Basketball honors. In his only season at Arizona, Johnson was named first team All-Pac 12 and Freshman of the Year before being selected No. 8 in the 2015 NBA Draft by the Detroit Pistons.
