Dior Johnson, widely regarded as the top point guard in the 2022 class, will transfer from Saugerties Senior (Ulster County, N.Y.) to IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.) this year.
Johnson racked up 1,098 points in just two varsity seasons and averaged 31.1 points, 3.5 steals, 3.1 assists and 4.6 rebounds last season as an eighth grader.
Johnson already has offers from Memphis, TCU, LSU, Ole Miss, DePaul and Georgia Tech.
The Ascenders are on a shortlist of teams favored to challenge for the GEICO Nationals title this season with a squad that includes Noah Farrakhan, Lester Quinones, Josh Green, Jeremiah Robinson-Earl and Armando Bacot, among others.
