Class of 2024 PF Morez Johnson has made a decision about the future of his playing career.

He is from St. Rita High School in Chicago, Illinois. Johnson is currently unrated by the 247Sports Composite.

However, Johnson has a bunch of Power 5 offers from around the country. Illinois, Florida, and Texas have all offered Johnson so far in his early high school career.

Johnson has decided that he’ll be staying in his home state of Illinois. Johnson announced his decision via Twitter on Friday.

Johnson is the Fighting Illini’s first commitment to the 2024 class. Michigan and Houston are the only other schools with commits in the Class of 2024.

Illinois men’s basketball finished with a 24-7 overall record in 2020 and finished 2nd in the B1G. We’ll see how this affects recruiting in the long term if Brad Underwood can sustain this momentum.
