One of the top point guards in the country has trimmed his list of schools down to six.

2023 PG London Johnson announced a top-six on Tuesday that included Clemson, Virginia, Alabama, Southern Cal, NC State and Georgia.

Clemson offered Johnson back in July and the 6-foot-4 player out of Norcross High in Georgia told All Clemson that despite a good relationship with assistant coach Antonio Reynolds-Dean, it was on offer that caught him off guard.

"To be honest, I was super surprised when Clemson offered," Johnson said. "As a kid, I used to attend Clemson’s Youth Basketball Camp. Over the past year, coach Antonio Dean-Reynolds has kept up with my progress and I’ve been able to develop a relationship with him."

One of the most sought-after players in the country said he thought his skill set was a perfect fit for Clemson and Brad Brownell's system.

"I think my ability to shoot the basketball and stretch the floor is a great fit for coach Brownell’s system," Johnson said. "I’ve always enjoyed a close relationship with my head coach. As a point guard, I have to be coach's eyes and ears on the floor, essentially an extension of coach's thoughts."

The 2023 SI All-American candidate is arguably one of the top-ten point guards in the country and a Top-25 talent overall.
