Holmes Junior Ricardo Johnson was named MVP of the Boys Sweet Sixteen tournament after averaging 13.3 points and eight rebounds and playing stellar defense.
Following receiving the award and leading his Bulldogs to the State Championship Ricardo receieved his first D-1 offer from Bradley. I would imagine that there will be more to come for Ricardo he is being heavily recruited by Louisville, Kentucky, Butler, Xavier, Cincinnati, Georgetown, Oklahoma State, and Mississippi State to name a few. Needless to say Ricardo will be receiving more of these letters as his AAU career and Senior season move on. From my conversations with this young man he is very soft spoken and humble and will be a great addition to nay program.
