East Lansing’s Brandon Johns Reveals Top 10 For His College Basketball Choice
The top basketball recruit in the state of Michigan for the class of 2018 is in our own backyard and he's down to his top 10 schools.
Brandon Johns out of East Lansing High School has re-tweeted an image from Evolved Edits that shows him with 10 school logos representing the options he's weighing to where he will play basketball after high school.
Unsurprisingly, both Michigan State and Michigan have made the cut. Tom Izzo and John Beilein have recruited Johns heavily and they, and various assistants, have been spotted semi-frequently at his games. Plus, it's not like either coach has to travel particularly far to catch Brandon Johns in a game, especially Tom Izzo.
Iowa and Purdue join the two Michigan schools to make four different Big Ten options Johns is considering.
Since East Lansing was knocked out of the MHSAA tournament in mid-March, five schools have offered Brandon Johns a scholarship according to 247Sports and all five of them made the cut. Those schools are Texas, Creighton, Missouri, Memphis and Xavier.
During his time so far at East Lansing High School, Johns has been a part of two perfect regular seasons and has a career high school record of 59-11. He averaged over 20 points a game in 2016-17 to bring his high school career average up to 17.6 points per game. Johns also averages 9.8 rebounds a game and over three blocks a game through his three years so far as an East Lansing Trojan.
Johns is considered near unanimously across the recruiting websites to be the number one player out of the state for the class of 2018 and he hovers in and out of the top 50 nationally. 247Sports lists him as the 16th best power forward prospect in the country too.
