Coach Romar on Johnson: Physically, with his body type, he is ready to go right now. He's aggressive, strong and a slasher that goes to the basket, but he compliments it with a nice jump shot. I don't want to compare him to Terrence Ross, but Terrence had that blend of being a slasher and a shooter. Terrence is probably a better shooter, but in terms of slashing, Darin is probably better at slashing to the basket. He wants to become a better basketball player. He likes our style; he feels our style matches who he is as a person and a player and he decided to pick the university of Washington. We could not be happier.
