Michigan just added another big commit to an already strong 2018 class and it comes from outside the Northeast.
St. Anne’s-Belfield (VA) standout Javon Johnson has verballed to the Wolverines, a decision reported by Joe Lombardi on LaxLessons.com’s Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section.
The 5-foot-6, 150-pound Johnson, a righty from Charlotte (NC), is an athletic dodger with tremendous skills and agility.
He is also an outstanding student who has a 3.0 GPA.
What were the main factors in your decision?
I chose Michigan because of the great opportunities that the university had to offer.
The great education and the academic support was a huge factor as well. The coaching staff was great, and what they plan to do with the program was exactly what I was looking for.
What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
UVa, Loyola and some Ivy league schools.
What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
I’m a quick guy, so I play fast. I always look for that “one more pass.”
What area of your game do you need to work on?
Right now I am looking to improve my consistency in my game and my IQ.
What travel team do you play on what showcase events did you participate in?
Dukes LC, Road Warriors.
I participated in Maverick Showtime, and the Adrenaline Black Card.
Any final thoughts and people you want to thank for helping you reach this point?
I first want to start out by thanking my parents for all that they have done for me.
I also want to thank all of my coaches that have helped me grow as a player.
I want to thank coach Ebe and Christmas Duke’s LC. Also coach Burnam and coach DC Road Warriors.
Thanks to Coach Perriello and the entire STAB community.
