Evaluation: Johnson is a guy who has all the physical tools in the world (other than strength) between his athleticism, length and how mobile he is. He gets up and down the floor very well and will be a terrific fit for the Tar Heels. He is a superb rebounder and shot-blocker but can improve on his ability to score inside. However, he does have the ability to knock down the jumper out to 15 feet although he can improve his consistency on those types of shots. He has good hands and is able to alter shots even if he’s not able to block them as well. Another significant thing Johnson can improve on is his strength.
