St. Francis senior-to-be Logan Johnson will be back in a Lancers uniform next season

Johnson announces he is staying at St. Francis

June 3, 2017

The past few weeks have now contained two announcements which can change the landscape of Northern California boys basketball in the 2017-2018 season.

After NCS Freshman of the Year Kyree Walker announced a couple weeks ago that he was leaving Moreau Catholic to attend Hillcrest Prep in Phoenix, CCS Junior of the Year Logan Johnson has now confirmed that he is staying at Saint Francis, who lost in overtime to Moreau Catholic in the NorCal regional final this past season.

Johnson had previously said that he was moving to Miami, where his brother Tyler plays for the Miami Heat. After further deliberation, however, the Johnsons have decided to stay in the Bay Area, and Logan will be back in uniform for the Lancers next season.

The senior-to-be has received recent offers from schools such as San Jose State and Colorado, to go with previous offers such as Fresno State and Utah State, and the offers should only continue to grow for a player who scored 26 points in the NorCal final and was named Co-MVP of the West Catholic Athletic League after averaging 18 points, eight rebounds, and four assists per game. He will be joined on the court again next year by talented underclassmen such as Oscar Pedraza and Maurice Wilmer.
