Montverde (Fla.) Academy combo guard Chris Johnson is one of the top prospects in the 2023 class and led the Houston Defenders to the Under Armor Association title, scoring 18 points in the win.
I am officially committed to Kansas and I can’t tell you how happy I am about it.
Kansas was with me through the whole process. through the ups and downs and everything about them just felt right. Plus, Kansas has always been my dream school, so this was just icing on the cake.
When I went to visit last week, it was literally a family. All the players and coaches were on the same page and you could tell it was a true brotherhood. I got to see the whole story there, and then once they won the natty it was a different level in every way. Visit was 10 out of 10.
It’s funny because Coach (Bill) Self wanted me to commit from then on, but my mom really wanted us to go through everything with a clear head. We went back and talked about everything and weighed everything and called him the next day. He was actually in the middle of moving at the time, and when we told him he was very excited.

What I really liked about Kansas is that they really let their guards snap. They like guards who can guard 1–4, and that’s me all day. They want me to get out there and be myself. They see me as a combo guard, but in their system, he’s really positionless. This is one of the best parts of it.
Now that I am on board, I will try to do my duty and take the people there with me. I think I’ll go after Wesley Yates, my fellow Texan. I’ve been playing with him since elementary school. That’s my guy. In fact, during my visit, I had the entire Kansas staff watch his game on TV, so I really want to play with him.
It feels so good to end this thing. To finally know that the process is over and I’m just dreaming about this day is crazy. It’s good to know my phone won’t blow up 24/7. I’m definitely looking forward to it. I can’t wait to get down there and roll this thing.
Okay, that’s all I have for you. I just wanted to give you a glimpse of what the decision involved.
Thanks for reading and Rock Chalk.
