Default Villanova Transfer Tyrone Johnson Very High On Gamecocks

Tyrone Johnson, a 6'3" two guard that played for Villanova last year will transfer next month. He says the Gamecocks are a major player with him. His coaches at Montrose Christian HS are very high on Frank Martin and think he has done a really good job getting Carolina turned around. Tyrone went to school with Michael Carrera (they are very good friends) and won a championship playing with him. He says he will make a decision within the next week. I believe he will be able to practice with Carolina starting next month and is eligible to play January 2014 after waiting a year.

I just read on TBS he is planning a visit to Illinois this weekend, but not
finalized. Based on the trip and proximity, he will then make a decision on Sunday.

Default Re: Villanova Transfer Tyrone Johnson Very High On Gamecocks

Former Villanova PG Tyrone Johnson will choose between USC and Illinois according to Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports Network. Johnson has visited USC and George Washington, and Bill Gunter of TheBigSpur.com reported that Johnson will visit Illinois this weekend. Johnson was a highly touted recruit in 2011 for the Wildcats out of Plainfield, NJ. He averaged 3.3 points and 2 assists per game last season. He decided to leave Villanova at the start of this season. He has remained in school and has been working out with the team while exploring his options. Johnson will enroll in January and will become eligible next December.

He didn't make the trip because of scheduling issues. Now they are not sure if he'll have enough time for a visit before spring classes begin.....his grades are fine so that shouldn't be a problem. Per GCC.

Some high school coach up there that knows him seems to think he is coming to Columbia. I don't know if he has a date for making the decision. Needs to be soon.

He is announcing sometime this week, last I have heard. Canceling his visit to Illinois is a huge plus for us.

Huge pickup. He was an elite prospect coming out of high school, rated 4 stars by Rivals, Scout, 247 and ESPN. Rivals rated him as the number 52 player in the nation.

Can FM recruit or what. Our program keeps better every day. Remember, the CLA naming rights expire after this year (I think), so picking up these kids and improving our program will go a long way towards us getting a better financial deal going forward. Butts in the seats, Frank's paying for himself.

I came across an old Montrose Christian video from the 2010-11 season. Interesting because it has highlights of their players, including Tyrone Johnson and Michael Carrera. Welcome Tyrone!

Anyone know when Tyrone will start practicing with the team? Or when he arrives on campus?

Looking forward to seeing this guy play next year.
