Former Johnson basketball star Ty Cockfield commits to Arkansas State following junior college stint
Guard returns to Division I level after playing freshman year at Stetson
Former Johnson High basketball player Ty Cockfield goes up for a basketball during the 2014 Region 8-AAAA championship game against Eastside in Oakwood.
During his lone year playing for the Georgia Highlands College basketball team last season, Ty Cockfield could count how many people were watching in the stands. It was a far cry from his days as a standout at Johnson High, from which he graduated in 2015 after spurring the team to an undefeated regular season and Class 4A state quarterfinal appearance. And it certainly paled in comparison to his freshman year at Stetson University, whose average attendance was about 800 people, per NCAA statistics.
