"I was at home. I just wanted to do something."

Among the coaches in attendance were former Clemson assistant and VCU head coach Shaka Smart, Kentucky's John Calipari, Clemson's Brad Brownell and South Carolina's Darrin Horn. To have these and other notable coaches on hand in North Augusta to watch Johnson and other top notch high school basketball players compete could have added a bit of pressure to these young men, but Johnson didn't see it that way.

"This doesn't put any pressure on me," Johnson said. "I play like this all the time."

Johnson, who played for Chris Paul's CP3 All-Stars, finished the four-day tournament connecting on 36 of 44 shots from the field giving him the highest field goal percentage among all players. In fact, Johnson opened the tournament going 9-for-9 against the Albany City Rocks. Because of his performance, Johnson has garnered interest from St. John's and the NCAA champion Connecticut Huskies. With a few more schools added to the list of interested teams, Johnson says no one team now stands out.

"I'm open now," he said. "I'm listening to what everybody has to say."
