Rutgers’ Kejaun Johnson Released From Letter of Intent

Three-star recruit and Rutgers signee Kejuan Johnson has asked for a release from his letter of intent, and is expected to receive it today. Evan Daniels of Scout.com reported Johnson’s decision on Twitter this morning.

A 6’6″, 210 pound forward out of Virginia’s Hargrave Military Academy, Johnson had also drawn interest from BU, Florida, Marquette, Texas, Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech. In terms of where he’ll end up next, no information has been given.

Either way, it’s hard to find fault with Johnson wanting a release. Rutgers has gone 22-43 in two seasons under head coach Eddie Jordan and struggled mightily last season. In their first year in the Big Ten, the Scarlet Knights went 10-22 (2-16 Big Ten) and finished dead last in the conference.

Rutgers has also not made the NCAA Tournament since 1991 and is still healing from the Mike Rice controversy, so it’s not exactly winning the “Most Desirable Program” contest.

Johnson has not given a reason for wanting his release and, as was mentioned earlier, has not elaborated on what his next step will be.

Campus Sports will update this story as more information becomes available.
