Four-star shooting guard Robert Johnson is continuing his recruiting journey this weekend as he plans to visit the University of North Carolina this weekend. 247 Sports is reporting that Johnson will be on campus today meeting with the coaches and touring the campus.
Johnson, a recruit in the class of 2014, is one of three shooting guards on the market that is being targeted by Roy Williams and the Tar Heels. Coach Williams is shopping around for a shooting guard to complete his already No. 1 rank 2014 recruiting class. Also in the mix for Roy Williams at the same position is Rashad Vaughn and Dante Exum. Johnson is the favorite of the three for UNC to land.
Johnson is in the middle of a recruiting tour that he began a few weeks ago on August 24th with a visit to Bloomington with the Indiana Hoosiers.
Last weekend Johnson visited with the Virginia Cavaliers and after this weekend, he will hit the road and visit the Florida State Seminoles next weekend.
The 6’3″ and 180 pound guard has entertained several scholarship offers but it all seems to point to one thing. The odds are, regardless of where he goes to school, Johnson will more than likely be playing in the Atlantic Coast Conference. He is strongly considering Florida State, North Carolina, Virginia, Indiana, and Pittsburgh. Indiana would be the only non ACC school on that list.
