Mississippi State picks up power forward

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 "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.
A solid athlete, Johnson joins five-star swingman Rodney Hood and four-star recruits D.J. Gardner and Deville Smith to make up the Bulldogs 2011 recruiting class.
