At Mater Dei, Johnson played a pivotal role for the Monarchs, winning CIF-State titles (2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014) in each of his four varsity seasons, as well as two CIF-SS championships (2012 and 2014).

During his high school career, he posted workhorse-like numbers over four seasons, playing in 141 games and averaging 16.2 points and 7.9 rebounds per outing.  Additionally, he made 810 of 1,586 field goal attempts (51.1 percent).  Before being selected as a lottery pick, Johnson played one season at the University of Arizona, where he averaged 13.8 points and 6.5 rebounds per game in 38 contests for the Wildcats.
