Through his years at the helm of the Pittsburgh program, Jamie Dixon has identified a formula for success. He and his staff have made a regular habit of finding underrated kids and some of their top players have hailed from Baltimore. Add underrated wing Durand Johnson to that list.
A native of Baltimore who will prep this season at Wolfeboro (N.H.) Brewster Prep, the 6-foot-6 wing confirmed via text Monday night that he's going to be a Pitt Panther.
"What's up? I'm committed to Pitt, I just did it," Johnson texted Rivals.com.
Playing his summer and spring ball for Cecil Kirk, Johnson developed a reputation as a wing who is equally comfortable slashing or playing out on the perimeter and hitting jumpers.
