The number of available players in the class of 2011 continued to shrink on Wednesday. Roquez Johnson became the latest to take himself off of the market.
Johnson, a 6-foot-6 senior power forward at Montgomery (Ala.) Carver committed to Mississippi State on Wednesday.
"Well, I was talking to my dad today and my head coach and just decided to go ahead and commit," Johnson told Paul Jones of BulldogBlitz.com. "It was pretty exciting and I am coming into a program with a lot of talent. I am just going to come in and do my best to help us compete for and win a national championship."
Currently rated as a two-star prospect, Johnson has made a strong case for elevation to a three-star prospect as a senior. He's become more effective on offense, continues to be a high volume rebounder despite being a bit undersized and is a hard worker.
