The 6-foot-8 guard would be a major boost for the Wildcats, who have seen a mass exodus of underclassmen leaving the program for the 2017 NBA Draft this offseason.
During his final year at Pitt, Johnson was third on the Panthers in scoring with 11.9 points per game, while adding 4.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists.
