2019 Recruiting: Gonzaga offers four-star forward Issac Johnson

New, comments

The Zags are putting a focus on big guys from Utah at the moment.

The Gonzaga Bulldogs have offered four-star 6’10 forward Issac Johnson out of American Fork, Utah.

Johnson is ranked as the second-best player in the state of Utah, the 13th best power forward in the nation, and the No. 67 ranked player in the class of 2019 according to 247 Sports.

The forward made a name for himself at the Tarkinian Classic, showcasing an ability to hit shots from long range and run the floor surprisingly well. Judging from his mixtape below, Johnson is definitely a power forward more in line with Kyle Wiltjer, someone who stretches the floor.

He is the second big-man the Zags have been searching for in Utah, coming hot on the heels of the (Johnson’s teammate) Matt Van Komen’s offer. The Zags will have to compete with a bevy of other Utah schools for his services. Johnson has already been offered by BYU, Southern Utah, Utah, and Utah State. Baylor and Stanford have also offered Johnson, and Oregon is reportedly in the recruiting mix.

As usually is the case, any player in Utah is hard to get to leave the state, but perhaps Jesse Wade will be able to make a pitch.
