LSU women’s basketball signee Johnson taking part in prestigious McDonald’s All-America game

CHICAGO – LSU signee Flaujae Johnson will compete in the McDonald’s All-America game Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. on ESPN2 in Chicago’s Wintrust Arena.

Johnson, the No. 26 ranked player and No. 6 guard by Hoopgurlz.com, is one of 24 players in the McDonald’s All-America game on the girl’s side and she will compete for the West squad that will dawn red jerseys.

A guard out of Marietta, Ga. that is a part of LSU coach Kim Mulkey’s first recruiting class at LSU, Johnson will have the opportunity to showcase her basketball talent on a national stage.

Throughout her senior season at Sprayberry High School, Johnson had numerous impressive games that included a double-double of 40 points and 14 rebounds.

Johnson was named the Georgia Region 6-6A Player of the Year for her efforts on the court.

“Flaujae is a guard who can play any perimeter position at a high level,” Mulkey said. “She handles the ball exceptionally well and she couples that with great court vision as well as having the ability to shoot the three. She has a tremendous work ethic and will be a great guard for us. Flaujae has a tremendous passion for the game of basketball, and we can’t wait to get her on the court inside the PMAC.”

Scoring over 1,615 points throughout her high school career, Johnson became the all-time leading scorer for Sprayberry High School. Not only does she excel on the court as a hooper though, Johnson also excels as a singer where at the age of 12, she appeared on the Rap Game television series and then two years later she reached the quarterfinals of America’s Got Talent.

She has nearly one-million followers across all social media platforms.

“Tying music and basketball together is all I’ve ever wanted to do,” Johnson said. “It’s always been my dream, to live out both of my dreams.”

After the McDonald’s game, Johnson will also compete in the Jordan Brand Classic in Chicago on April 15.
