The Wake Forest Demon Deacons announced that they’ve added Northern Arizona graduate transfer Torry Johnson to their basketball roster on Thursday.
Johnson led Northern Arizona in scoring last season and is eligible to play immediately after graduating this spring. The 6-foot-3 guard is a Chicago native who played at Morgan Park High School before scoring 11.5 points per game as a redshirt junior in 2017-18.
“We are excited to welcome Torry into our Demon Deacon family,” Wake Forest coach Danny Manning said in a release by Wake Forest. “He is a very talented young man who will bring a veteran presence to our team.
“He has had a chance to develop his game by playing for great coaches like Nick Irvin and Mac Irvin at Morgan Park High School and the Mac Irvin Fire AAU program, along with Jack Murphy at Northern Arizona. We are looking forward to seeing his impact on and off the court in our program.”
Johnson averaged 10.1 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 0.8 steals per game while playing in 62 contests at Northern Arizona. He will graduate with his degree in mechanical engineering later this month.
“I am excited to become a Demon Deacon,” Johnson said. “The coaching staff is so genuine and I felt a strong connection with them when I met them. To have the opportunity to play for a Hall of Famer like Danny Manning and the staff he has here, I am confident that they will be able to help me improve and reach my potential as a player.”
