Former Sun Prairie basketball player Jalen Johnson has parted ways with IMG Academy (Fla.), according to a source. reported earlier this week that Johnson, a 6-foot-9 power forward and Duke University recruit, left the high-profile basketball academy.

Johnson played both his freshman and sophomore seasons at Sun Prairie High School, leading the Cardinals to their first-ever appearance in the WIAA Division 1 State Tournament in 2018.

Johnson, along with his younger brother Kobe, transferred to Nicolet High last year and led the Glendale, Wis. school to the Division 2 title in March.

It remains unclear if Johnson will suit up for another school this season before enrolling at Duke following graduation.

Johnson is part of the No. 1 recruiting class in the nation for the Blue Devils.
