SHARON – Penn State Shenango men’s basketball coach Geoff Evans received his second commitment of this year’s recruiting season from the Cleveland Central Catholic program in signing Kenon Johnstone.

Jayden Williams, also from Central Catholic, committed earlier last month.

Johnstone, a 6-foot-3, 220-pound power forward, starred not only in basketball, but also in football and track and field for the Ironmen.

Kenan averaged 7 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists in his senior season and helped lead Cleveland Central Catholic’s run to Ohio’s Sweet 16 in 2019. In football, Johnstone played running back and middle linebacker and in track ran the 4x100, 4x400, 200 meter dash and competed in the long jump.

“Kenan is a physical player and will give us much needed depth in our power forward position,” said Evans. “With his 6-foot-3, 220-pound frame, he will be able to guard most bigs in this league. We are excited to have Kenan a part of our PSU family.”

Johnstone was named team MVP in football during his senior season, All-Defensive Honors in basketball and earned four terms on the school’s Academic Honor Roll.

Kenan was coached by Jordan Duke while part of the Ironman basketball program. He is the son of Gary and Sharon Johnstone. His major is currently undecided.
