Former Benton Ranger Reece Johnson is joining the Saluki Basketball team as a walk on it was announced on Sunday night.

Johnson, standing at 6’0, brings a high level of Basketball IQ to the team and helps to fill out a team that will be deep at the guard position, making him the 9th guard on the roster.

Johnson transferred from Neoga to Benton his junior year and became an instant star.  He was named to the 2A All-State teams in both seasons with the Rangers.

Despite holding 16 active players on the roster, SIU still holds one scholarship for this coming season should they find the right player to fill that position.
