Findlay Prep guard Nick Johnson has verbally committed to the University of Arizona basketball program.
Johnson, who is from Gilbert, Ariz., averaged 14.2 points and 3.6 assists per game for Findlay last winter. The nationally ranked program, which is housed in Henderson, won a second straight ESPN Rise national title.
The 6-foot-3, 195-pound Johnson is ranked as the nation’s No. 45 overall prospect by recruiting website Rivals.com. The four-star recruit is the nation’s No. 13-rated shooting guard.
Johnson picked Arizona over eight other scholarship offers, including Louisville, Kentucky and Arizona State. Verbal commitments are non-binding.
