Johnson seems unlikely to waver to commitment to Cal

Erika Johnson said Sunday she isn’t planning to ask Cal to release her from her letter of intent to play basketball there, despite the departure of coach Joanne Boyle, who is taking the job at Virginia.

“I don’t really want to do that,” she said. “I still really want to go to Cal.”

Johnson, the 6-foot-1 Holy Names senior who won a variety of state Player of the Year awards last month, admits she was sad when she heard about Boyle’s decision, which caused her to re-evaluate her situation a little.

“It was a little bit stressful,” she said.

But she said choosing Cal in the first place was not solely based on Boyle being there.

“I love the place,” she said. “I love the girls on the team. . . I’m not planning on going anywhere else, unless something drastic happens, of course.”
