As 2011 prospect Durand Johnson is beginning to develop a complete game at Baltimore Lake Clifton High School, three schools in particular are showing strong recruiting attention.
UNLV, Pittsburgh and UMass are in the forefront of the recruitment of Johnson, a 6-foot-6, 191-pound sharp shooting small forward. According to Lake Clifton head coach Herman Harried, all three schools have been in multiple times to watch Johnson and have offered.
Averaging 15 points and 10 rebounds per game, Johnson has impressed Coach Harried with the steady progress he has made in rounding out his game.
"He can really shoot the ball, but he is beginning to score more by attacking the basket and posting up," said Coach Harried. "He is becoming more than just a shooter. He is beginning to defend and has really rebounded well for us.
"If he goes to the right school that is a good fit for him, he is going to have a solid college career."
