Harvest, AL (Future150) -- Jamal Johnson (Class of 2017, Westminster Christian Academy/ Nashville Celtics) is a young player that has some huge potential.
He is currently listed as a 6-foot-3, 145 pound shooting guard.
Johnson is taller than most kids his age, but has the possibility of getting even taller, because his dad listed at 6-foot-8. I guess you could say height runs in the family.
Not only is he tall, but he can also handle the ball very well. He utilizes his ball handling skills to setup other players on his team for open looks at the basket.
“I am really hard worker, I have the ability to play multiple decisions, and feel I have great court vision,” Johnson claimed.
Although he knows the strengths he has, there was no hesitation for him tell me what his weaknesses are.
“I tend to be very hard on myself when I make a mistake on the court, it is something that I want to overcome one day,” he advised.
“I also want to work on my shooting from behind the arc and my body strength.”
There are many things that make him standout, but see below what he thinks makes him standout player both on and off the court.
“I believe my versatility and basketball IQ on the court are impressive, plus I have good grades in the classroom,” Johnson explained.
The young kid has some high aspirations in basketball, but also wants to achieve other goals when he gets to college.
“I would love to major in Sports Management, because I want to be a game commentator or a coach one day,” Johnson provided.
Johnson is a Jr. Future150 camp alum that showed us he was a great overall athlete.
“The Future150 camp was really awesome and I look forward to attending many more Future150 camps in the coming years.”
