Former Wellington guard Kendall Johnson has signed with Edward Waters, a historically black college in Jacksonville. Edward Waters basketball competes at the NAIA level.

Johnson, a 6-foot-1 guard, provided perimeter scoring and length on defense. His team named him its top defender for the 2010-11 season. He averaged 8.5 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals a game, forming one of the area’s top backcourts with 6-4 point guard Scott Witkowski and helping Wellington to a 20-8 record and a regional quarterfinals appearance.
