Larry Johnson Commits to Creighton

6’3” Guard | SoCal Academy (CA) & Team Thad (EYBL)

The #75 player in our 2024 rankings, Larry Johnson has committed to Creighton over Virginia Tech, Mississippi State, Illinois and Mizzou. He was a prominent stockriser this past spring and summer as he saw his recruitment take off after shining with Team Thad. As things currently stand, he is set to join Jackson McAndrew (#33 in 2024) and Ty Davis (#149 in 2024) in the Blue Jays’ 2024 recruiting class. Creighton is also targeting Darrion Sutton and a few others in the 2024 class. 

Johnson is a hyper-athletic guard who impacts the game on both ends of the floor while leveraging his motor, energy and athleticism. He’s a bouncy rim finisher who is filled with explosiveness and vertical pop. Quick-twitch slasher who leverages a shifty first step to attack closeouts. Dangerous transition scorer who is able to get up and down extremely quick while putting pressure on the rim. Capable shotmaker who isn’t afraid to let it fly when given the space off the catch, however he certainly excels at getting downhill. Tenacious, scrappy and laterally quick on-ball defender who is highly disruptive at the point of attack. Can ignite fast breaks with his quick-twitch and sharp reflexes jumping passing lanes. There’s still some polish to add, although the athleticism, energy and two-way toughness makes him a strong get for Creighton.
