DraftExpress: I've barely seen him play. Ineligible last season. Hurt at U17s. RT @jsmargolis Will Dakari Johnson get consideration for your 2014 mock?

DraftExpress: Dakari Johnson and Jabari Parker both didn't play. Johnson has a groin injury that will likely keep him out of the Final. Parker is 50/50.

HoopHall Classic Scouting Reports: Elite 2013 Prospects
January 24, 2013
Dakari Johnson, 6'11, C, Montverde Academy, 2013
Committed to: Kentucky

Recruiting Rankings: ESPN: 12, Rivals: 13, Scout: 15


-Outstanding size for a center. Measured 6-11 in shoes, with a 7-0 wingspan and a 263 pound frame
-Strong frame allows him to carve out deep post position inside at will
-Major presence on offensive glass
-Possesses solid hands
-Has a basic back to the basket game after sealing off his man
-Capable of scoring with a right-handed jump-hook shot or simple duck-ins

-Not incredibly explosive
-Struggles to finish around the basket in more complicated situations due to lack of elevation
-Not incredibly skilled at this stage in terms of post moves, footwork or counters
-Needs to improve left hand
-Average free throw shooter
-Average defender. Struggles to step out outside the paint. Does not possess great lateral quickness. Lacks the explosiveness to protect the paint as a help-side defender

Outlook: Chiseled center who looks the part currently more than anything. Will have some adjustments to make defensively in college. Will need to continue to improve his skill-level and feel for the game, but at just 17 years old has plenty of time to do so.
