    Purdue showing interest in 5'10 Illinois sophomore

    The list consists of the nation's No. 1 team at the moment, LSU, plus Kansas State, Arizona, Iowa, Northwestern and Purdue -- all teams showing interest in a 5'10 Olney (IL) sophomore forward who is on target to pass the all-time Illinois state scoring mark by the end of her high school career.

    Through two years of competition, Brittany Johnson has 1,784 career points, following her 929 sophomore total that was the 11th highest season total in Illinois history. The career mark of 3,403 has been set by Angie Sapp of Williamsville.

    Prolific would be a good description of her scoring abilites. As a sophomore, Johnson made 347-of-652 attempts (.532) from the field, and was 195-of-216 (.903) from the freethrow line. Johnson also set a new state mark for consecutive made freethrows this year by hitting 48 straight. The previous record was 39. She rounded out her game by averaging seven rebounds, three assists and three steals.

    This season she was the leading vote-getter for the Class A all-state team by the Associated Press, earning 63 of 65 total points. Her 855 points her freshman season was a state freshman scoring record.

    Keeping with the Illinois Class of 2007 "Johnson" theme, former Purdue men's basketball star Russell Cross has a niece at Trinity HS, Lykendra Johnson. Johnson can be a beast at times on the boards, and is a player to watch as one of the best in the Illinois Class of 2007. Trinity lost in sectional play against Fenwick. Russell's daughter, Erica, is a freshman on Trinity. Cross also has another niece playing at Bogan HS, junior Ashley Turner.

    Additional names to keep an eye on in the 2007 class in Illinois that have been looked at include 6'2 Devereaux Peters of Fenwick, 5'11 Alison Jackson of Fenwick, 5'9 Tatiana Ortiz of Von Steuben, and 5'8 Latear Eason of Hope.
