When Kickapoo senior Isaac Johnson committed to Drury University Wednesday afternoon, the Panthers gained a point guard with some legitimate leaping ability.

Johnson is a guard who scores an average of 9.5 points per game and usually acts as Kickapoo’s point guard and leading assist man. He scored a season-high 21 points in a Jan. 8 win over West Plains.

Kickapoo is currently 20-2, with its two losses coming to out-of-state opponents in the 2016 Bass Pro Tournament of Champions.

The NCAA Division II Drury Panthers are 14-7 in coach Steve Hesser’s 12th season with the team.

Johnson announced his verbal commitment with a tweet that included a photo of him playing at Drury’s O’Reilly Family Event Center against rival Glendale the previous night.

The NCAA signing window for national letters of intent pertaining to basketball opens April 13, which will be the first day Johnson will be able to sign with the Panthers and make his commitment binding.

Nicknamed “Ice,” Johnson was one of the shortest players in the Bass Pro Tournament of Champions’ slam dunk contest at 6-foot-0.
