2026 Jayden Johnson is going to be a name you will want to know if you don’t already, as he is looking to be one of the top players in his class in Kentucky. The 6’5 combo guard from Trinity High School will be a target for so many schools, and he is already getting a first-hand look at a few schools.
Johnson recently made a trip to Indiana, as the Hoosiers took down Michigan State in front of a hostile crowd. And the young prospect certainly walked away impressed
“It was great,” Johnson told Phenom Hoops. “The excitement in the gym was amazing. The fanbase is 100 percent sold on their program.
The freshman was able to get a first-hand look of what it would be like playing there in front of a sold-out crowd. Indiana was a program that he really wanted to check out in person and learn more about.
“Yes (in regards of being a program he wanted to see), Mike Woodson is an NBA coach, so him coaching at a historic school like Indiana was exciting to me. My dad talked to me about Coach Woodson, and it reminded him coming to the school I played at last season and he told me he was going to keep an eye on my development, so to come to a game means he kept his word.”
Though it is still early for Johnson, there are other schools that he would also like to check out down the road as well.
“Kentucky and Arkansas are big on my list, but Louisville also intrigues me because of Coach Payne.”
But as of right now, no dates have been set.
