one of the ISU fans, @RedbirdRecon, tweets that Johnson will be visiting ISU on Sept. 20 also
prior to his visit to Bradley on October 4..it will be an unofficial visit
ISU offered Johnson more than a month ago
TF South HS is in the south suburb of Lansing, IL, and one of their most famous grads is Curtis Granderson.

Not sure if Bradley is still pursuing Brandon Johnson but he's still uncommitted...
UIC (head coach Steve McClain) making a push for him.

One internet recruiting report has him with SIUE and UIC among his top finalists.

Brandon Johnson of T.F. South High School in Lansing, Illinois has committed to Western Michigan. He was a BU recruit under Geno Ford, and Illinois State coach Dan Muller reportedly wanted him, but in the end he reportedly chose Western Michigan over UIC and SIUE.

I wonder how bad BU wanted him. I don't doubt that we wanted him and he preferred to go elsewhere. We are having problems in filling that last scholarship.

Actually, it was Geno who initially recruited him. I am not sure Coach Wardle was ever really very high on him. But Wardle prefers to sign another guard with the last scholarship, so I do not think Bradley was still recruiting him.
From people who have seen Johnson play, he is a bit of a project, and is undersized for a kid who plays the center position.

Former Bradley & ISU target Brandon Johnson has suddenly left TF South High School in mid-season and transferred to Gary Bowman HS...
I doubt he will be eligible to play there the rest of this season but he remains committed to Western Michigan

In his first game at #5 ranked Gary Bowman in Indiana, Brandon Johnson started and scored 22..
but their opponent, #7 ranked Crown Point raced out quickly to a 20 point 1st half lead & "cruised" easily cruised to a 21 point win over Bowman

Johnson only had 2 points in each of the first three periods and scored most all of his points late, in the 4th quarter when Crown point had apparently let up a bit..


but here's something really odd....

Their 2-time State Champion & "legendary" head coach (Marvin Rea) got fired last season amid a bunch of controversy and allegedly trumped up issues
http://www.nwitimes.com/sports/high-...c5429131b.html

But even that's not the end of it. ....he was re-hired when they realized kids would leave the school in protest over it and was allowed to coach in the post-season
but...this season they have a new principle and a new coach, Migel Nunnery

Anyone remember Brandon Johnson?? (from TF South HS in Chicago area then transferred to Gary, IN Bowman HS)

Lots of midmajors pursued him and watched him closely....
Bradley offered, and Johnson even visited Bradley - but once we got our commits - we backed of...
ISU reportedly pursued him seriously and wanted him...

But in the end lots of other schools backed off and passed on him and he signed at Western Michigan...

He is now kinda surprising people - and doing exceptionally well...
In WMU's first five games Johnson has started all five and played very well, averaging 10 ppg & 6 rpg in his freshman year.
