I think Johnson was brought in here to recruit MN kids, and turn this into a sustainable concept. He was not expected to do this in a year or two. Fact is he has a pretty good group already for next year, osans a portal disaster. Henley and Carrington have been much better once they got acclimated, and comfortable, at this level. Carrington shows potential as a 3 point shooter which was his high school reputation. Payne will be an absolute beast next year. He plays all out, all the time. Almost ignored was the unreal effort he made getting off the floor then end to end to intercept a fast break pass Last night. Ole Joseph is solid. Add in the Illinois guard, and you have a solid base in place. That’s what Johnson was brought in to do, not got to the Dance immediately.
