Best Virginia announced on Thursday morning that former WVU G Kedrian Johnson will be joining the team for this summer’s TBT event. Johnson just wrapped up his collegiate career at West Virginia.

“I can’t wait to play in front of the great West Virginia fans again,” Johnson said. “It’s going to be a lot of fun with the past West Virginia players. It should be a good time. Get your tickets now, and let’s go.”

Johnson joins former Mountaineers Kevin Jones and Nathan Adrian to join the team so far.

Johnson (6-foot-3) just completed his collegiate career at West Virginia, playing in 91 games over the span of three seasons. Johnson, a native of Dallas, Texas, averaged 11.7 points, 2.2 rebounds and 3.1 assists during his fifth year of eligibility. Johnson finished his time at West Virginia with a career-high 27 points against Maryland in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Johnson’s first season at WVU saw him behind current New York Knicks guard Miles “Deuce” McBride. After McBride went to the NBA, Johnson took the keys and started at point guard the following two seasons. Johnson totaled 111 steals during his 61 starts for the Mountaineers.

Before WVU, Johnson played at Temple College in Texas, becoming the nation’s leading scorer in Junior College.

“Keddy brings energy to our team,” Best Virginia head coach James Long said. “His last season at WVU was all about value. He greatly impacted every area of every game he was in. He was one of the best guards in the best league in the country.”
