Weingarten is also reporting that Johnson will be visiting Ohio State this upcoming weekend.
Johnson ranks as the No. 10 shooting guard and No. 37 overall prospect in 247Sports’ composite rankings for the 2026 class. He’s also ranked as the No. 1 player from Kentucky.
Johnson currently holds offers from Cincinnati, Missouri, Texas A&M and West Virginia. Keep an eye on Johnson’s recruitment as the Spartans may continue to be engaged and eventually extend him an offer.
