Gamecocks coach Frank Martin said Johnson would be eligible to play when the team opens the season Saturday against Longwood. Johnson is a 6-foot-3 guard from Plainfield, N.J., who left Villanova for South Carolina last January. He was not expected to play for the Gamecocks until mid-December after the first semester ended.
Johnson has practiced with the team since enrolling at South Carolina last January. He started nine games for Villanova in 2011-12, averaging 3.3 points over 32 games.
