Introducing: Kewan Johnson

At the 12U Nationals I was watching the Youth Interlock game when I looked on the adjacent court and saw a kid catch a put back dunk while the crowd went crazy. This was introduction to Kejuan Johnson. On that play the ref called an over the back foul but the effort alone got my attention. Johnson is a strong and athletic power forward playing for the J-Smoove All Stars based out of Atlanta, Georgia. He is very developed physically for this level of basketball and knows how to dominate a game with his size, moves and strength. Offensively Kejuan knows how to get deep post position and punish defenders with his spin moves. He rebounds very easily and is an intimidating force on defense. Finally like other big men Johnson loves playing the guard role so he can be seen handling the rock and pushing it coast to coast. He’s currently ranked very high on many national web sites.
