PINSON — Rising Clay-Chalkville senior Khali Johnson has made up her mind.
The 5’8” point guard took to Twitter on Monday, Aug. 3 to announce her commitment to Lurleen B. Wallace Community College in Andalusia.
“First and foremost, I would like to thank God for this amazing opportunity in allowing me to continue to play the sport that I love,” wrote Johnson. “I would also like to thank my parents and brothers for believing in me and pushing me. Last but not least, I would like to thank coach Haynie, my teammates and friends for all of the support and allowing me to have a great high school experience.”
“With that being said, I will be continuing my basketball and education career at Lurleen B. Wallace Community College,” she continued.
Johnson helped lead the Clay-Chalkville girls to an appearance in the Class 6A regional semifinals at Jacksonville State University last season. That represents the team’s first regional berth in four years.
Johnson was also named to the Class 6A, Area 12 All-Tournament team following the Cougars’ league championship run in February.
