UC Riverside adds guard

10/9/2011

Point guard Tajai Johnson ended his recruitment earlier this week when he verbally committed to UC Riverside.

ESPN.com Recruiting Coordinator Joel Francisco breaks down this commitment.

"Tajai Johnson is a great pick up for Riverside," Francisco said. "He is one of the more underrated point guards out west. He has a burst off the dribble and an uncanny ability to find open teammates in tight spaces.

"The combination of Johnson and 6-foot-2 Dayton Boddie (Oceanside, Calif./El Camino) should provide the Highlanders with a talented and hardnosed backcourt for the future."

Johnson and Boddie join Tre'Von Owens in the Highlanders 2012 class.
