    Darius Johnson, the 6-foot-1, 193-pound point guard from Episcopal (VA), has committed to UCF.

    Ranked the No. 21 point guard in the Class of 2021 in the 247Sports.com Composite, he also considered Alabama and Providence.

    “UCF right now has no point guards and they have a lot of skilled wings and I think I could really help take their program to another level,” he told ZAGSBLOG before his public announcement.

    “I can score when needed, and I can also distribute and put my teammates in positions where they can score. I also love to win.”

    Johnson is UCF’s first commit in 2021 and he said he wants to recruit 6-9 power forward Tyrone Baker of Hightower (TX) to join him.
