Sacramento, CA (Future150) -- Dating back to April, Darin Johnson did not hold many offers. After a big summer on the AAU circuit, the combo guard raised his stock and scholarship offers to double-digits.
Johnson, who will suit up with Sacramento Sheldon (CA) this year, made his verbal commitment to Washington Sunday afternoon.
The 6-foot-3 playmaker has had Lorenzo Romar's program high for a good month, and the commitment comes as no surprise.
Why so high on the Huskies?
"Washington's history of getting guards to the NBA is a big part of my decision," he told Future150. "It's my dream to make it to the league."
With Isaiah Thomas, Tony Wroten, and other former Huskies reaching their dreams, Johnson feels like he can do the same at Washington.
He joins another top guard, Nigel Williams-Goss, as the first two commitments for U-Dub.
However, the team's performance isn't bad, either.
"They are one of the top teams in the Pac-12. It's hard not to like them, especially with the great coaching staff they have."
Johnson chose Washington over Oregon, San Diego State, and Texas A&M.
Now the focus shifts to the high school season, where Sheldon, led by Johnson and San Diego State commitments Dakarai Allen and D'Erryl Williams, look to be prime contenders for a state championship in California.
Johnson is a three-star according to Future150 and is ranked No. 107 overall in the 2013 class rankings.
