Johnson Plans Wake Visit

JaJuan Johnson

JaJuan Johnson spoke with Evan Daniels, of Deaconsports.com, and updated him on his recruitment and his recent play.

It's not easy for JaJuan Johnson to show off his improved offensive game when he plays with the Spiece Central Stars. His team is guard oriented and they jack up a lot of threes. But that doesn't bother the very unselfish, Johnson.

"I mean they score," Johnson said. And as long as they score I don't have a problem with it. I like playing with them they are a good group of guys."

When he does get touches in the paint Johnson has been efficient especially with his developed jump hook. But his main asset is his ability to block shots. Johnson has long arms, is quick off his feet and even keeps the blocked shots in play so he can help start a fast break.

"I think I've been playing pretty good. I've been running the floor hard, playing good defense and I'm working on my outside game a little bit too."

Purdue, Xavier, Cincinnati and Wake Forest are the schools recruiting him the hardest at this point. He also said that Xavier and Cincinnati are his top two choices right now, but that's mainly because he hasn't taken many unofficial visits.

In two weekends when his team travels to Chapel Hill, NC., for the Tournament of Champions, Johnson plans on stopping by Winston-Salem, NC., to pay the Demon Deacons a visit.

"Yeah I've been talking to them a lot on the phone," he said about the Wake Forest staff. "They want me to come for a visit when I'm in North Carolina."

The main thing Johnson is looking for in a school is a good coach that will improve and polish his skills.

"The coaches that's a big thing and the players, I know the academics will be good at most of the schools."
