Basketball: Bears sign another Price HS player

Cal announced the signing of Kahlil Johnson, a 6-foot-7, 190-pound small forward from Price HS in Los Angeles, the alma mater of current Golden Bears Allen Crabbe and Richard Solomon.

“Kahlil is a wing-type player that is highly skilled and is a good shooter who gives us great flexibility and the ability to move our players around and create match-up problems,” Cal head coach Mike Montgomery said.

“He can play multiple positions, and has improved tremendously in the last year. We are delighted to have him and think he’s going to be a great addition to our program.”

Johnson averaged 16 points per game for the Knights, who compiled a 26-9 record and reached the CIF Division IV state title game. Johnson had 26 points and 10 rebounds in the Southern California title game, then 17 in the state championship loss to Salesian.

Johnson joins fall signees Tyrone Wallace, a 6-4 guard and top-100 prospect from Bakersfield HS, and 6-9 forward Kaileb Rodriguez, a three-star recruit from Highlands Ranch, Colo.

OK, back to vacation.
