Former Duquesne PG Jackie Johnson III Transfers To UNLV



Weeks after making a surprise decision to transfer from Duquesne after just his freshmen season, point guard Jackie Johnson III has found a new basketball home.

Johnson announced on Saturday that he would be transferring to UNLV.

The 5-foot-11 guard averaged 9.5 points per game while shooting 42% from the field and 37% from three-point range. Johnson made 11 starts for the Dukes and connected on 41 3-point shots.

Johnson arrived to Duquesne from Hargrave Military Academy and was a 3-star recruit in their Class of 2021. Johnson selected Duquesne over other offers from Coastal Carolina, East Carolina, Montana State, North Texas, St. Bonaventure and Utah Valley.

Prior to his decision to transfer, Duquesne appeared to have the nucleus for a solid future backcourt considering both Johnson and Primo Spears were just freshmen.

Keith Dambrot and his staff have been busy recruiting the guard position with VCU transfer Tre Clark and JUCO guard Quincy McGriff being two names to remember.
