HoopSeen (11/01/2018): “A relentless motor made KD Johnson a no-brainer selection for this list. A trip through our Fall Preview camp created further separation between Johnson and some of his peers as he competed like a man on a mission. Quick twitch moves left many of his defenders on edge as he boasts one of the most explosive steps in all of the southeast. Defensively he can be left on an island as both his competitive nature and athleticism could make him a lockdown defender. There are no signs of KD Johnson slowing down anytime soon.”
HoopSeen (10/22/2018): “Wow, what a day he had. Johnson was the most trending player in the camp. He did just about anything he wanted in the three games he played in. Athletically, there wasn’t a better jaw-dropping athlete quite like him in the field. His explosion is special. Johnson shined as a perimeter shooter from there, got the rim at will and did just about anything he wanted on the floor. Johnson has a special competitive spirit to his game that will serve him well during the next chapters of his hoops career. He was the consensus top performer from all of our coaches and staff. – Justin Young”
HoopSeen (09/27/2018): “The rise of KD Johnson has been a quick one since his play over the spring and summer. A host of mid to high majors have tossed their hat in the ring with offers and unofficial visits. UGA and Auburn are the most recent to have extended offers with several looking to soon follow suit. Johnson plays with a chip on his shoulder despite the rise in acclaim. Some players simply want it more than others and that seems to be the case with Johnson.”
SandysSpiel (07/10/2018): “KD Johnson was hands down by far and away the best 16U player in attendance and he was rewarded by receiving Most Outstanding Player and an offer from Seton Hall. Johnson was brilliant to open up the tournament, pouring in 37 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist, 4 steals and 2 blocks. Johnson was the epitome of a “man among boys”, doing whatever he wanted in a 99-71 win over ATL Hoops. Most impressively, Johnson drilled 6 three-pointers, hardly hitting the rim on his first four attempts. After a 5-point first half in the championship game, Johnson revved it up in a losing effort to finish with 20 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists and 1 steal. Johnson was outstanding all day long. As he matures, he will need to learn when to take his foot off the throttle and change speeds. Johnson can tend to be an emotional player as well, usually for the good, but when adversity hits with a bad call or an off night, he must respond appropriately. Johnson is a sure-fire High Major prospect.”
