Kevin Johnson played well against Oak Hill, and looks like the type of player who can succeed playing the Horizon League. Johnson displayed a good level of athleticism, and he applies it very well on the court. He finishes strong inside, and also out-jumps a lot of players for rebounds. Johnson also displayed the ability to step out and hit the mid-range jump shot. He appears to stand a legit 6’7” off the ground, and has a good body for a highs school big man.
Johnson looks like he sometimes struggles against taller players who can match his athleticism. He doesn’t look like the kind of guy who is going to create a ton of offense for himself right away, and his game inside looks a little limited at this point. In the Horizon League, this will not be a huge problem.
Johnson and fellow Simeon teammate Tim Flowers will both play at UW-Milwaukee next season. They should help the team in the rebuilding process to get back to where they were a couple of years ago. Both big men should be able to handle spot minutes right away, and it will be interesting to watch them develop over the course of their 4 years.
