Russell Johnson is feeling a little more comfortable today, after signing to attend Robert Morris on a full basketball scholarship next fall. The 6-6 senior forward just finished a stellar career at Chester High, playing a key role in the Clippers' 33-1 season and their second PIAA Class AAAA state championship in 4 years.
Johnson selected Robert Morris, a school just outside Pittsburgh that plays in the Northeast Conference, over George Washington, La Salle, Temple and Marshall.
"I always knew that I was going to go there," said Johnson, who signed his national letter of intent Tuesday. "I went over there and saw the campus and fell in love with it. It feels good to be committing somewhere, instead of running around not knowing where you're going to go. Robert Morris was always in the picture."
