Florida transfer G Keyontae Johnson announced his commitment to Kansas State on Saturday afternoon. Johnson is preparing to return to the court for the first time since Dec. 2020.
“God Da Greatest,” Johnson wrote on Instagram.
Jeff Goodman of Stadium reported that Johnson chose Kansas State over Western Kentucky and Memphis. Johnson has been cleared by multiple medical staff and will return to the floor this upcoming season.
Johnson (6-foot-5, 229 pounds) was an All-SEC recipient back in 2019-20. During his sophomore season, Johnson averaged 14.0 points, 7.1 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game. The Norfolk, Va., native shot 55 percent from the field and 38 percent from three.
Johnson entered the transfer portal in May. The 22-year-old has a $5 million insurance policy if he never plays again.
New KSU head coach Jerome Tang has done a great job rebuilding the Wildcat roster through the transfer portal. Johnson joins Cam Carter (Mississippi State), Jerrell Colbert (LSU), Tykei Greene (Stony Brook), Abayomi Iyiola (Hofstra), David N’Guessan (Virginia Tech), Desi Sills (Arkansas St.) to commit to Tang and Kansas State. The Wildcats will have a competitive team this upcoming season in a loaded Big 12.
