The commitments continue to keep rolling in for members of the St. Mary's High School's top-rated girl's basketball program. After the recent commitments this spring and summer by St. Mary's star players Courtney Ekmark (UCONN commit), Danielle Williams (Michigan commit), Dominique Williams (UCLA commit) and Chantel Osahor (Washington commit), now add Chloe Johnson to that list of division-I commits.
The talented 5-foot-7 senior guard recently gave a verbal commitment to San Diego State University - a member of the Mountain West Conference.
Johnson is another very talented prospect on the Knights' very loaded roster and helped lead her Knights to an undefeated season last year, a state championship and an amazing national championship, as the Knights held the nation's #1 ranking throughout the high school season.
Johnson saw her fair share of college recruitment, as a result - receiving serious recruiting interest from a large number of school this off-season. After official recruiting visits to the University of Utah and to PENN, Johnson made her decision for the Aztecs.
St. Mary's High School's top-rated prospects continue to make recruiting headlines, as many of the players from last year's undefeated state and national championship team either have headed to colleges or are committing to college programs. Johnson is the 5th member of her Knights program to commit to a high-level division-I program this off-season.
St. Mary's HS head coach Curtis Ekmark has done an amazing job of developing his talent and showcasing them as well.
Johnson is as good a guard prospect as there is in Arizona's very loaded 2013 class, and is currently rated among our top overall prospects in the class.
Look for Johnson to help lead the Knights to a third-consecutive Division-I state championship this season.
Johnson is also an excellent student and carries close to a perfect 4.0 CUM GPA.
Arizona Hoop Review Scouting Report: A tough and skilled guard prospect, Johnson is capable of playing either guard position on the floor. Her ability to handle the basketball and make plays for herself or others is a nice attribute that makes her tough to defend on the floor. She is an excellent penetrator and can get into the lane almost at will, where she is an excellent finisher in traffic. She is also a very good passer that looks for the open player on the floor, and also sees the floor with very good court vision. She enjoys playing the game and has very good toughness, as she plays low to the ground - making her an excellent defender as well, with very good lateral quickness. Johnson is also a very good shooter with some range on her shot, although she is at her best from mid-range on the floor. She will need to continue to develop the range on her shot to reach her maximum potential as a player. An excellent prospect that already has a college-ready body.
