Webb High School (TN) guard Keon Johnson is a name to get familiar with. Hit the jump as the athletic 6’5 sophomore goes in depth on his game and dishes the latest on his recruitment.
Johnson has exploded on to the scene this year with multiple 40 point games and triple doubles to solidify himself as one of the best perimeter prospects in the 2020 class.
“I feel like I have done a good job so far but my main goal is to help take my team to a state title.”
Johnson is an intriguing prospect with prototype size and length. Checking in at 6’5 with a nice wingspan, shot-making ability off the dribble, very good athleticism and plus vision, Keon checks all the boxes in terms of a versatile guard that can play on or off-ball.
“The biggest strength of my game is recognizing a mismatch and taking advantage of the mismatch.”
Keon’s strong play on the court is leading to some well-deserved attention in the recruiting world. Johnson made the short trip to Knoxville for an unofficial visit to Tennessee this weekend and had high remarks for the Volunteers coming off an impressive victory against Ole Miss.
“The visit was great. I talked with the assistant coach and the environment was great as well.”
The Webb HS product currently holds offers from Middle Tennessee State and Florida International with interest from Auburn, Wake Forest, Vanderbilt and the aforementioned Tennessee.
While his recruitment is sure to pick up more steam, Keon’s primary focus is on further developing his already potent perimeter skillset.
“I’m looking to improve my jumper and tightening up my handle,” Johnson told Endless Motor.
We really like Keon as a guard with the potential to be an impact two-way player at the next level considering his package of size, skill and athleticism. While he’s had a superb season thus far with Webb, the best thing about Johnson is upside…………..he’s not even close to reaching his full potential and that is scary.
