SG Darin Johnson commits to Washington
By Mason Kelley
Darin Johnson announced Sunday he will play college basketball at Washington.
"Just committed to the University of Washington!!" the senior said on his Twitter page, giving a verbal commitment to the Huskies.
The 6-foot-4, 190-pound shooting guard (Sacramento, Calif./Sheldon) picked Washington over Oregon and San Diego State. He recently visited Washington with Huskies point guard commit Nigel Williams-Goss (Henderson, Nev./Findlay Prep) and forward Aaron Gordon (San Jose, Calif./Archbishop Mitty), who is rated the No. 6 player in the ESPN 100.
Johnson, a three-star prospect, and Williams-Goss, a four-star recruit, make up Washington's 2013 recruiting class and will make their commitments official during the early signing period in November.
