Originally from Richmond, VA, Ramon Johnson plays College basketball for the Arizona Wildcats. Johnson was born to Silvia and Ralph Johnson on April 29, 2002. His two elder sisters, Jamie and Jaylin, as well as his younger sister, Jacey, all played significant roles in his upbringing. Coming up, Johnson faced his fear of engaging in sporting events. The little boy from Richmond was encouraged to play basketball by his supportive friends and family. Since then, he has been passionate about the sport.

Ramon was chosen as the rooster for the 2021-22 season at Arizona State University (ASU) and is only a true freshman. Fans eagerly awaited his games in anticipation of his signature fast pull-up jumper and silky three-point stroke.
Johnson, who stands at 6 feet 4 inches tall, has a reputation as a long and agile scorer who has no trouble launching long-range shots. He possesses solid touch on the midrange jumper and the defensive skills to be an instant contributor. At his height, he should provide ASU with potential backcourt balance alongside Diggins (6-foot-1).
He participates in a sports scholarship program through the University of Arizona Athletics. The incoming freshman is a key member of his collegiate team’s defense as a guard.
During his time with the No. 2-ranked Sparta (30-3), Johnson averaged 12.5 points and 5.0 rebounds per game. Jones evaluated the recruit for ASU.

In addition to thorough basketball skills training, Johnson watched nearly every ASU game to get a feel for the Wildcat’s playing style and what he would need to do to be prepared upon his arrival. He remembered Wildcat’s high-tempo defense, constant ball movement, and players’ clear understanding of their roles.
Most scouting reports had Johnson as a top-50 recruit with four stars, but his coach claims that Johnson’ stock would be better now if he hadn’t missed out on spring and summer due to the coronavirus.
Johnson has worked hard to get ready for the next level in his career. He dedicates between two to three hours of his day to basketball training with Joel Barkers at You Reach I Teach Basketball Academy and contemplating his future at ASU.
