Nike Nationals-July 10: At 5-9, Johnson is a tough-minded player who can compete at both ends of the floor. She not only is a great facilitator and passer, but is a constant threat to score because her first step is quick enough to get by most defenders. Johnson has good range on her jump shot and her body control is excellent; she doesn't need a lot of space to get a shot off. When she is handling the basketball she rarely gets rattled even under intense pressure, and once she breaks down the press she keeps the ball in the middle of the floor looking to create scoring opportunities. She defends with great energy and urgency, she has great lateral speed, which allow her to jump out in the passing lane and get steals. It will be interesting to see how she continues develop and will compete next year as the lead guard on the 16U team.

USJN Cincy-July 10: Nice outside stroke, high energy player who defends the perimeter very well. (Bodine)
