Que Johnson's winding path out of Pullman apparently leads to Bowling Green, Kentucky. The former WSU guard confirmed reports he is transferring to Western Kentucky.

"Coach (Rick) Stansbury, he's a good coach," Johnson said, via WBKO.com. "He has a winning attitude about him, especially coming from Texas A&M. That's what drew me to Western."

The decision ends a process that took nearly a month and involved a couple of twists. First, Johnson planned to declare for the NBA Draft without hiring an agent. That would allow him to explore his options and gauge NBA interest while still having the ability to return to school. A couple weeks later, reports came that Johnson was instead planning to graduate and transfer from WSU.

Johnson's transfer options were initially limited with WSU restricting him from transferring to 23 schools -- every school on WSU's 2016-17 schedule. Those restrictions were ultimately lifted. Eventually, Johnson found a new home and transferred hoping to end his college career with a NCAA Tournament appearance.

"I was just trying to pick the best situation to win and make it to the (NCAA) tournament," Johnson said.
