Dequavion Johnson has been an Underdawg and a Top Dawg all in one. Easily one of the most talented Seniors in the state of Michigan, he has always seem to have to prove himself to be considered one of the Elite. For the Top Dawgs Tra Qua Johnson leads the Program in Points scored, Assist and Rebounds in a 3 year span. During the Summer he is a super star but during his School Basketball season he plays behind 2 Nationally ranked high school Stars. Only thing you can do at that point is work like a Dawg and thats what he did. Tra Qua Proved that he can play aginst the best , with the best and can be considered the best. On Wednesday April 15th 2015, Dequavion Johnson signed his letter of intent to Ferris State University. Congratulate this young man because he is the true DEFINITION of the words TOP DAWG.
