WATCH: Interview with WVU Hoops Signee Kedrian Johnson

Schuyler Callihan

The Mountaineers missed out on the tournament for the second straight season, thanks to COVID-19. The outbreak forced the NCAA to cancel the tournament, crashing the dreams of many student-athletes around the country.

However, once basketball does return, the Mountaineers should be one of the most talented teams in the country. They have talent and depth, two things that will take you extremely far in March. 

One of the members of the 2020 signing class, Kedrian Johnson (Temple Junior College) joined us to talk about his recruitment, what sold him on West Virginia, what he's doing to stay in shape during quarantine and much more.

Johnson's bold prediction for next year was that the team will make a seriously deep run in the NCAA tournament. "I have very high expectations, I'm going to say Final Four, championship game because we really have a lot pieces, we've just got to put them together," Johnson said.

Johnson averaged 25.6 points, 4.2 rebounds and 4.3 rebounds per game, while shooting 46.8% from the field and 37.9% from beyond the arc. He chose the Mountaineers over other offers from Buffalo, New Mexico, New Mexico State, Missouri State and others.

Looks like Deuce might lose some playing time. McCabe won't lose playing time. He only played 13 mins a game
You only have 1 PG that can DRIBBLE!! SHOOT & PASS. REMEMBER beating TCU 25 pts 11 assts 6 steals and 5 rbs. CULVER 22 pts 21 rbs both were Freshmen. Then any one of West Virginia guards
can score 25 pts a game in JC ball. That's like playing intramurals.

No. 1-4
