    Miami has landed East Carolina transfer forward Brandon Johnson, as first reported by On3.com.

    The 6-foot-6 Raleigh, N.C. native averaged 14.8 points and 6.6 rebounds as a junior.

    After going 15-17 overall and 6-14 in the ACC, the Hurricanes could also bring back Nijel Pack and Wooga Poplar and will add five-star McDonald’s All-American guard Jalil Bethea and Virginia Tech transfer big man Lynn Kid, who averaged 13.8 points and 6.5 rebounds last season.

    “We are extremely happy to have Lynn join us because he is an incredibly gifted offensive scorer around the basket and who I considered the most improved player in the ACC this past season,” head coach Jim Larrañaga said last week. “He has put in the work to take his game to the next level. His work ethic is unmatched and he will bring maturity and four years of ACC experience to our team.”
