Michala Johnson is transferring

Here is what I have to report regarding Michala Johnson. First, a source close to the situation confirmed that the sophomore forward will be transferring from UConn at the end of the spring semester. Although ESPN HoopGurlz reported on twitter that Johnson would be heading to Wisconsin (where here younger sister is committed to play) and WTNH had a report confirming that information, my source did not know of her final destination.

UConn is not planning to release a statement on the matter tonight but once the details are ironed out, I expect that the school will put out a release.

Johnson averaged 1.5 points, 1.2 rebounds and 4.9 minutes in 26 games as a sophomore. She will have two years of eligibility remaining but will have to sit out next season per NCAA transfer rules.

Jim -

(1) A decent assumption is that Hartley, Dolson, and KML will play together for 2 more seasons.

(2) Stewart, Tuck, and Jefferson arrive next season. A decent assumption is that 2 of the 3 remain at UConn for 2+ seasons.

(3) Walker played while at UConn but allegedly missed home and transferred after 1/2 a season. Johnson never had a chance at UConn arriving after 2 ACLs and transferred after 2 seasons.

(4) UConn played only 6 players in March 2010. UConn played only 7 players in March 2011.

(5) Buck has been in Auriemma's dog house for 3 seasons.

(6) Even without her injury, Engeln has been in Auriemma's dog house for 2 seasons and rarely played. Since she was injured while on UConn's watch, Engeln certainly will not transfer now.

(7) There were No early verbal committments to UConn for the 2013 incoming class.

Based on all the above, it is very possible that UConn suffers another 1 player recruiting class in 2013. Maybe 2 at best.

Jim, what are your thoughts? Thanks.

(4) Should have been 6 players in March 2011 and 7 players in March 2012.
