He received McDonald’s All-American honors and was First-team Parade All-American in his senior year.
Following his matriculation, numerous universities sought to recruit John, and he eventually committed to North Carolina University, playing for the Tar Heels for the next three years, before declaring for the NBA Draft in 2012.

Also he was the ACC Defensive Player of the Year in 2012, and was selected for the First-team All-ACC the same year.
He was selected as the 14th overall pick by the Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA Draft of 2012, which marked the start of his professional career and his net worth, as he signed a rookie contract with the franchise.
