Anthony Johnson, who once seemed destined for stardom at Dundee-Crown, recently verbally committed to attend Purdue.

The hot-shot guard from Whitney Young is the half-brother of former D-C star and 2004 Courier News Player of the Year C.C. Kilbert. Johnson, a junior at talent-rich Young, is a gifted shooter and very basketball savvy.

Johnson's family moved to Chicago before his freshman year at D-C, leaving the Chargers program before he arrived.
