Johnson a slender-sleek guard has been a fixture for the Vikings since the 7th grade. Johnson averaged 15,7 ppg last season for the Vikings. Johnson plays the game almost too unselfish at times. Johnson has a really good feel for the game and a nice mid-range shot. Johnson is very crafty with the ball. 


Malik Palmer
