Jalen Johnson joins Wake Forest as grad transfer from Tennessee

Jalen Johnson is the newest member of the Wake Forest basketball program. As the Demon Deacons look to finish out a roster for the 2020-21 season, the Tennessee graduate transfer committed on Monday; Johnson is immediately eligible.

During his three seasons at Tennessee, Johnson appeared in 70 games (two starts); the 6-foot-6 wing averaged 3.5 points and 2.0 rebounds per game as a junior.

For his career, Johnson shot just under 36 percent on his 3-point attempts: 34-of-95 (35.8 3P%).

Back in April, about two weeks before Steve Forbes took the job at Wake Forest, Johnson committed to East Tennessee State. Now, he’ll follow Forbes to Winston-Salem.

A week ago, Wake Forest also added junior guard Daivien Williamson, who played for Forbes for two seasons at ETSU.
