Here is a kid that most of you have probably not heard of just yet, but by the end of August, I think most of the nation will know who KD Johnson is. Kadarius “KD” Johnson is a 6-foo-1 point guard out of Southwest Dekalb High School in Decatur, Georgia, the same school where Shaq Goodwin, who attended Memphis University, went to school. The junior point guard really put scouts and college coaches on notice last spring, summer and towards the end of AAU last year, he started to receive much attention.
Johnson is a fierce and very dynamic point guard. He is a prospect who plays with a chip on his shoulder every time he steps foot on the floor. No matter what kind of game it is, Johnson is going to play consistently every single time. He holds that dog mentality and shows supreme competitiveness on both ends of the floor. KD can go coast to coast in a blink of an eye. He is able to take the contact when driving to the basket and draws fouls on almost half of his buckets. His improvement as a point guard has sky rocketed from just a year ago and will be displaying his talents on the national stage this spring, summer.
I spoke to KD on where his recruitment stands so far going into his last AAU season. “Seton Hall, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Georgia State, and Virginia Tech have been in contact with me the most so far”, KD tells me. Johnson has taken visits unofficially to schools like Alabama and Georgia Tech and was suppose to take an official to Seton Hall but that had to be rescheduled. He also tells me schools like Virginia Tech, South Carolina, Kansas State, and others have shown interest but have not actually offered just yet. KD will be one of the prospects in the 2020 class that will have a stock rising AAU season. He is currently ranked #109 according to Rivals.com.
