Ronnie Johnson, who started for two seasons as the point guard at Purdue, has decided that he will be transferring to Houston.

He made the announced on twitter on Thursday afternoon:

Officially a Cougar for Houston University #Htown

We’ll go ahead and ignore the fact that it’s the University of Houston and not HU for now because Johnson was pretty productive with the Boilermakers. He averaged around 10 points and four assists both years that he was there. He’s a diminutive, lefty point guard with some serious quicks, but he also played on two teams that didn’t do much of anything in the Big Ten.

Johnson will have to sit out the 2014-2015 season but he will have two seasons of eligibility remaining starting in 2015-2016.
