Richmond Times-Dispatch: Benedictine senior sees recruiting profile boom

Six months ago, Robert Johnson’s best scholarship offers came mostly from mid-major basketball programs. Virginia Commonwealth, perhaps, was the most prestigious school courting him.

Over the summer, though, the Benedictine senior’s profile has boomed. He now has 20 offers under his belt, including Indiana, Georgetown and North Carolina.

On Friday, he will pick just one. Indiana, North Carolina, Florida State and Virginia are his finalists.

The reason Johnson’s recruitment gained so much momentum is the result of two important factors: He upped his game to a higher level and he did it in front of a big audience.
