Brandon Johnson broke out during July! The TF South power forward exploded on the scene with his domination around the hoop. He is an athletic post that played with a motor during July with Young and Reckless 15U.
On the offensive end Johnson finished strong on a consistent basis and showed aggressive moves around the basket. He is a power player that displayed flashes of skill whether it was hitting hook shots or knocking down a face up jumper. He rebounds at a good clip and blocks shots. With his play in July he proved he is one of the more intriguing post players to track in 2016 in Illinois. How did he feel the month went?
“I think I did what I was supposed to do. Grabbing rebounds, getting points when needed, helping the team out.”
What does he feel the strengths are in his game?
“Blocking shots, rebounding, and scoring when needed. Whatever you need I can do.”
Johnson discussed what he is looking forward to as a sophomore at TF South.
“I am looking forward to being conference champs. The last five years we haven’t won a conference championship so I am looking forward to it.”
Anything going on with recruiting early in the process?
“My coaches told me Drake and UIC are looking at me.”
This is a prospect to keep a close eye on throughout the high school season.
