NC St Soph Markell Johnson Suspended indefinitely

NC State sophomore Markell Johnson has been suspended indefinitely by the team.

 

The school gave no further details.

 

“[Johnson] has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of the Student-Athlete Code of Conduct,” the university said via a statement. “We will not have further comment on this matter at the current time,”

 

The 6-1 point guard is leading the ACC in assists and is second in steals, averaging 8.7 points, 6.6 dimes, and a whopping 2.4 thefts this season.

 

He had started all 10 games for the Wolfpack this year.

 

ESPN’s No. 48 ranked player in the 2016 high school class, Johnson averaged an eye-popping 31.6 points along with 7.4 rebounds as a senior for East Tech High School (Cleveland, OH).

 

Johnson also had a strong AAU season the previous spring, averaging 18.2 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 4.9 assists on the Nike EYBL circuit for King James.

 

Originally in the 2017 class, Johnson reclassified and graduated a year early.

 

“He’s a phenomenal athlete who can score in bunches,” former NC State coach Mark Gottfried, who recruited Johnson, told the News & Observer. “He’s got great speed and explosiveness.”
