    ATLANTA – Set to announce his college decision on Nov. 12, class of 2023 four-star guard Ty-Laur Johnson broke down his options for ZAGSBLOG on Saturday evening.

    The 6-foot, 160-pound point guard from Our Saviour (NY) Lutheran, will be deciding between Seton Hall, N.C. State and Memphis at noon on Saturday.

    “I’m just trying to find a place that can make me comfortable and feel like home,” Johnson said before breaking down his three options:

    Seton Hall: “Me and the coach [Shaheen Holloway] are just alike. We’re both small guards. He has a lot of intensity and he pushes his players.”

    N.C. State: “I love the facilities. The coaching staff is great. They’re trying to make it my home.”

    Memphis: “It’s a great environment. They’ve got a lot of experience in the program. Penny [Hardaway] was a vet in the NBA. I think he could teach me a lot.”

    Johnson, the No. 66 overall prospect in the class of 2023 per the On3 Composite rankings, finished with 15 points and eight assists in a 92-88 loss to the City Reapers on Saturday evening with Seton Hall head coach Shaheen Holloway in attendance.

    “I’m very fun to watch, a lot of energy,” Johnson said. “I think I’m the best passer in the league and I can score when I need to.”

    Moving forward, Johnson said he wants to improve several aspects of his game.

    “I definitely want to shoot better, more consistently and stay in front on defense,” he said.
