Buffs add another ESPNU 100

10/4/2011

ESPN.com confirmed on Monday that ESPNU 100 small forward Xavier Johnson has ended his recruitment and will sign with Colorado.

Johnson, No. 24 at his position and No. 86 overall, visited the Buffaloes last weekend (Sept. 24). He was also being recruited by Arizona State, UCLA, USC and Harvard, among others.

ESPN.com Recruiting Coordinator Joel Francisco talks about Johnson's commitment.

"Xavier wanted to play in the Pac-12 and got his wish," he said. "He's a versatile prospect with an array of skills. He can step out and nail three's or go inside and utilize his length and underrated passing ability.

"He's a tenacious competitor with a great work ethic," Francisco added. "All these attributes should translate to a successful career for the Buffs."

Johnson is the fourth recruit for head coach Tad Boyle, joining fellow ESPNU 100 prospect Josh Scott, along with power forward Wesley Gordon and shooting guard Chris Jenkins, who committed on Sunday.
