SHALLOTTE — West Brunswick senior Saadiq Johnson has signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Averett Unversity in Danville, Va.
“They recruited me hard,” Johnson said. “I fit in well with the players in the program. And they win — I like to win.”
Johnson will be receiving nearly $21,000 per year from an academic scholarship.
“It helps my family so I can go up there, play basketball and get an education,” he said.
Averett showed an interest in Johnson in the fall.
