ESPN Player Evaluations

USJN DC-July 10: This 6-2 post isn't the first player you're going to notice on the Pistols' roster but she better not be the one that opponents ignore. Teams cannot succeed without the solid build and steady play this Powder Springs, Ga., product provides. Her aggressive low-post approach is physical and constant and her ability to finish is improving every time out. She wants the ball down low and continues to post even if she doesn't get it keeping the helpside defenders just a little tighter. On ball reversals, she's mobile through the paint and continues to look for the ball from the high post and the opposite wing. There's nothing flashy or intricate about her post moves, just a strong attack to the rim. She did demonstrate a nice five-footer in the middle of the lane which could translate down the road to some high post effectiveness. Defensively, and on the boards, she utilizes her size and strength while being a consistent presence. If she continues to advance and broaden her skills Johnson could become a real force.

Peach State-May 10: At 6-3 and solid she has a college frame but needs to show she has the skill set to score against common-sized opposition.
