Jaylen Johnson is finally a Louisville Cardinal.
It took much longer than expected, but Johnson has been cleared by the NCAA’s eligibility center and has arrived on campus, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal. He’s enrolled at the school, per the registrar.
Johnson’s arrival was delayed due to a complicated eligibility process. The Ypsilanti, Michigan, native had his high school consolidated with a neighboring school district which only complicated the process of figuring out whether his core classes were in line.
Johnson, a slender, 6-foot-9 power forward, is the No. 54 recruit in the class of 2014. Eric Bossi of Rivals describes him this way: “Energetic forward who attacks the glass and saves possessions because of his penchant for winning battles for loose balls. Shoots pretty well from mid range and is a good passer. Needs more strength and sometimes gets a bit too sped up.”
