Silky smooth guard Anthony Johnson, who plays for Whitney Young High School in Chicago, has been sidelined since the state tournament with a severe third degree ankle sprain. Johnson stands 6'3" and is listed as four-star recruit here by Scout.com
"I miss playing; the ankle injury really set me back from playing," Johnson said. "I have still been able to work on lifting but that's it. I just went to the doctor last week and he said I have some kind of virus going on, but today I feel a lot better."
Even though this 2010 student-athlete has been out with his injury he still has high hopes of doing great things when he gets to Purdue.
"I haven't been there for a visit recently but I'm done with school in a week and a half and I plan to get up there and see some of my future teammates," Johnson stated.
Johnson plays AAU basketball for the Illinois Warriors, and he claims his team is off to a great start.
"I should be 100% by the time July rolls around and I'll be able to contribute to my team then," Johnson acknowledged.
