Zac Johnson of River Falls High School has continued his stellar high school career this season. As a junior, the 6’2” guard is putting up 20.3 point per game to have led his team to a 5-2 season so far. Johnson is starting to attract the attention of more and more college coaches from all across the Midwest. 

Many division one and two programs have been in touch with Johnson including Michigan Tech, Minnesota-Duluth, North Dakota, North Dakota State, Southern Illinois, Valparaiso, Winona State, and Wisconsin-Milwaukee. So far, he has visited Minnesota-Duluth and North Dakota and is looking forward to visiting more schools once the season is over. 

For what Johnson is looking for in his future college includes aspects both on and off the court. “I am looking for a college that has a good academic program, a school that has a winning mindset that best fits my game at the next level, and a school that makes me a priority.”

One skill of Johnson that has drawn much of his interest from college coaches is his perimeter shooting ability. He is skilled with the ball in his hands and has a good ability to create his own shot off the dribble. Just last week Johnson had a stellar performance scoring 31 points, hitting a remarkable eight three pointers in the game to lead his team to the win. When talking about his performance Johnson stated, “it was a fun game to play in, it was close going down to the wire and my team and I came out with a victory against a great team (Xavier).”

“The countless hours in the gym, I try to get up a lot of shots every day, every week,” Johnson accounted for his strong shooting ability. One thing that Johnson said that he wants to improve upon is his playmaking ability. “I feel like if I’m able to become more of a consistent playmaker every game, I can elevate my game to the next level.” As well Johnson mentioned watching film on both James Harden and Luke Kennard to improve various aspects of his game.
