Hampton, VA (Future150) -- When you think of the AAU program Memphis YOMCA, plenty of talented names come to mind. Most recently the program had a plethora of high major players on their roster, as Shaq Goodwin and Alex Poythress starred last year. Kadario Flemming, Martavious Newby and Anthlon Bell where solid players as well; effectively burying the younger stars on the U-16 team last year.
While the big names on this team are Nick King and Johnathan Williams, JaJuan Johnson has started to make a name for himself. The smooth and talented shooting guard is instant offense and plays well above the rim. He has greatly improved the consistency of his jump shot, which makes him much more dangerous. Now that he has rounded into a complete player, there is no shortage of programs after him. Arkansas, Cincinnati, Arkansas, Florida, Louisville, Memphis, Miami, Mississippi, Tennessee, Texas, and Wake Forest have all offered him while Alabama, Georgetown, Marquette, Mizzou, and UCF have all shown interest.
With his improved play on the EYBL circuit, he has drawn even more interest and will certainly hear from more schools before the summer is out. Wherever he decides to play at the next level, it would seem that Johnson's future is very bright.
