  • Scout’s Notes:

    PrimeTime National Championships (August 1st, 2016): The last in the line of dominant Lawson brothers hailing from Memphis, 6'5" Johnathan has been groomed as a future wing for years now. While he's clearly not finished growing yet, he already has most perimeter skills nailed down, and can play any position on the floor if necessary. His spot has been solidifed as a top 20 prospect nationally. Now, it's a matter of seeing just how high he is ranked in our next rankings update. - Eric Hampford
