Brandon Johns Commits

Brandon Johns, the 6-foot-8 power forward from East Lansing (MI) High School, announced his commitment to Michigan Thursday via Twitter.

“It’s been a long ride but I’m beyond grateful to have gone through this with everyone that’s been apart of it,” said Johns in a statement released on Twitter. “Every college taught me something unique about them and I appreciate them all. This was definitely the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make but without further ado, I’d like to announce that I’m continuing my academic and basketball career at The University of Michigan.”

According to 247Sports, Johns is ranked as the No. 54 overall player in the Class of 2018 and the No. 1 player from the state of Michigan. He joins David DeJulius as the second commit in Michigan’s 2018 class. He took an unofficial to Michigan last year (Sept. 17).

Playing on the Nike EYBL circuit with Spiece Indy Heat, Johns has averaged 12.6 points, 6.6. rebounds, 1.1 steals, and 1.2 blocks per game in 16 games. He led them to a 7-9 record, missing out on Peach Jam.

“I want to thank all of the colleges who invested their time into recruiting, believing, and getting to know me and building relationships with me,” said Johns. “Every college taught me something unique about them and I appreciate them all.”

Johns chose Michigan over schools such as Michigan State, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Alabama, Iowa, California, Creighton, Memphis, Missouri, and Texas, among others. Johns recently took unofficial visits to Pittsburgh (June 24) and Indiana (June 12) earlier this month and an unofficial to Purdue earlier this year (Feb. 18). He also took three unofficial visits to Michigan State during his recruitment.
