WEST FORK – Last week West Fork forward/center Jared Johnson (6-foot-6) gave his signature to play basketball next year for Coach Clark Sheehy and the John Brown Eagles.

Johnson, a two-time All-State and All-District selection averaged 14 points and 10 rebounds a game for David Ferrell’s Tigers as a junior.
“JBU is a perfect fit for Jared,” Ferrell said. “It’s a great school and a great coach,  I think he made a real wise choice. He can help them, and it’s a great environment. It comes at a good time because they lose one of their two post players.”
“He’s really agile and he shoots well for a big guy,” Ferrell said. “He worked hard over the summer.  He expanded his game and now he’s much better from 6-8 feet.”
Jared is the son John and Rose Mary Johnson and plans to major in education.
