ISU basketball lands Troy transfer Johnson
AMES — Troy transfer Javan Johnson has signed with Iowa State.
The Cyclones announced on Monday that Johnson, who averaged 10.4 points a game last season, will join the team next fall. Johnson will sit out next season due to the NCAA’s transfer guidelines and be eligible to play the next two seasons after that.
Johnson, a 6-foot-7 forward, started all 30 games as a sophomore for the Trojans in 2018-19. He averaged 4.2 rebounds, scored 20 points three times and made a team-high 53 3s.
Coach Steve Prohm says Johnson has scoring versatility and a “tremendous upside.”
“Adding a player like Javan is really exciting for our program,” he said. “He brings great length and has the versatility to score at all three levels on the court. … I am really looking forward to seeing the strides he can make in his development.”
