Oklahoma high school girls basketball recruiting: Karley Johnson announces her commitment and transfer

Arkansas women’s basketball earned a commitment from a top Oklahoma girls basketball prospect. 

Mustang’s Karley Johnson announced her commitment to the Razorback with a tweet last week. 

“The day I met Coach Neighbors he saw something special and the program made me feel like family,” the 5-foot-9 forward wrote. “I’m more than excited to announce my commitment to the University of Arkansas.” 

As a sophomore, Johnson joined the 1,000 point club in February with a 22-point performance in Newcastle’s win over Clinton. After averaging 19.0 points and helping lead Newcastle to the state tournament, Johnson was named to The Oklahoman’s 2020 Little All-City girls basketball team. 

Along with her commitment, Johnson confirmed with The Oklahoman that she had officially transferred from Newcastle to Mustang this summer. Mustang girls head basketball coach Katie Bass was one of the first to congratulate her new star forward on her commitment. 

“Congrats love!” Bass wrote. “Thankful [you're] a Bronco. Excited for our future together.”
