Lower Merion basketball standout B.J. Johnson will commit to play for Syracuse in a 3:15 p.m. news conference Wednesday in the Aces' gymnasium, according to several sources.
The 6-foot-7, 175-pound senior swingman, who visited Syracuse last weekend, also considered Temple, Villanova, and Rutgers.
Last season, Johnson averaged 15.8 points in helping lead the Aces to a 29-4 record and the PIAA Class AAAA state final. He was an Inquirer second-team all-Southeastern Pennsylvania selection.
In the 1980s, his father, Bob, starred at Southern High and was a long-distance specialist for La Salle University. With the Explorers, he attempted 303 three-pointers from 1986 to 1990.
