H.S. Scouting Report

Evaluated 05/23/2023

Adam Finkelstein
Adam Finkelstein Director of Scouting

Johnson is a volume scoring lead guard who is very talented and confident with the ball, but can tend to dominate it at times.

He has a tight handle, good speed, and change of pace with various hesitation moves. He’s an under-the-rim finisher, albeit one who can navigate tight spaces in the lane and has soft touch as a lay-up maker. He’s a bit of a streaky shooter, who converted just 27% from behind the arc in the EYBL, but has a clean and repeatable release that should be more consistent as he improves the balance in his lower body. Johnson is also a true three-range scoring threat with a full assortment of pull-ups and floaters in the mid-range area.

He is a more than capable passer, who averaged over 6 assists per game this summer, but tends to prioritize throwing assists over moving the ball, and can also be turnover prone with over 4 per game.

Defensively, he has quick hands that allow him to be a playmaker on that end, but has to commit to sitting down in a stance and guarding for stops.

Physically, he’s a tad undersized with a naturally slighter build, but is gradually building up his body, and tough enough to compensate for whatever he may currently lack in inches and weight.

Overall, Johnson is a scorer and playmaker who needs freedom and volume to be at his best, but is still simultaneously working to find the right balance to maximize his efficiency.
