Jags Search JUCOs for Point Guard
He brings a toughness, a will to win," said Blinn coach Steve Spurlin. "Just a good overall team player, one of those guys that plays hard every night and wants to win."
While Johnson brings strong defense and a willingness to get everyone involved, there are questions about his ability to shoot the three. Coach Spurlin dismisses these observations.
"If anybody ever criticizes him, they says he can't shoot. Well, Mike works his shot in the gym every day. I tell everyone, lay off him and see what happens. He doesn't hunt for a three, but if the opportunity presents itself he'll step up and knock it down. His game is to get to the rim, get fouled or get somebody else involved. He's an old school guy as far as that goes. Just because the line's out there doesn't mean you have to shoot it."
The numbers bear this out as Johnson averaged less than two three-point shots per game but hit over 41% for the season.
Currently Johnson has trips set up to South Alabama and Albany and is still being pursued by North Texas and Wichita State. He currently holds offers from all four schools and there is still a possibility that other schools may get involved before the spring signing period starts on April 9th. Until USA gets a commitment from at least one of their point guard targets, expect the staff to stay in close contact with Michael Johnson.
