Johnson said he has a great relationship with Minnesota's coaching staff, which was one of his major selling points. He also cited Pitino's up-tempo style as factoring into his decision.

The point guard joins Kevin Dorsey, Dupree McBrayer and Jonathan Nwanko as Golden Gophers' 2015 commitments. Together, the four are ranked as the No. 25 class in the country on 247Sports.
