Chris... Chris... Chris! Welcome!



  • A huge “WELCOME” to Chris Johnson!

    Sure love his game and glad he will develop it further at Kansas!

    RCJH!



  • Very excited about him. I think a very important development for Chris is going to Montverde this year where he’ll be coached up and play top competition. As several people who’ve scouted him have said his on-court maturity needs work when things don’t go his way. It will be interesting to hear how he handles this transition before College. If he handles his business at Montverde that bodes well for playing under Self.

    His driving ability absolutely reminds of Devon Dotson with more size. Very excited to see what he’ll become in the future



  • @BeddieKU23 A buddy of mine and I use the term “fast ****er”. It started in Marcus Garrett’s SR season when the team didn’t have enough of them and we were really missing Dotson. CJ is definitely a ff.



  • @BShark

    Seems like his style of play is a great fit here. Aggressive, maybe overly aggressive at times that create the maturity issues noted. Seems like a kid that has a great set of tools already that will get fine-tuned with coaching & more experience.



  • This young man is a true competitor! I recall many players we have had that were very skillful but didn’t have this off-the-charts competitiveness like Chris has.



  • Going to be a great fit. Love his size and length.

    Pretty obvious he need to work on his shot. I think his first year might be a tough adjustment scoring the ball. A very right-hand dominant player from what you can see above. BUT the plus side is that he’s so damn fast that even if you know he’s going right you can’t stop it sometimes. And then the Bill Self weave will let him come off of a screen downhill and let him get in the lane for easy buckets.

    BIG get for the Hawks.



  • Bossi mentioned on 247 that Case was instrumental here. Called him one of the hardest working and well prepared assistants in the country.

    I admit I didn’t think he would take to the job so quickly. But it sure looks like he is the best recruiter on staff right now. I love having a guy who played at KU recruit for KU.



  • @Kcmatt7 He’s got to be a strong recruiter because of Self and Townsend being off the road and Norm never being considered a strong recruiter.
