Looking around the Coliseum League, you’d be hard-pressed to find a player who can match up with Deshawn Johnson.
An incoming senior at Washington Prep, Johnson possesses the type of versatility that can thrive in today’s game. Seemingly gone are the days where big men dominated the paint and offenses revolved around having strong post play. Nowadays, big men need to be able to do a little bit of everything on the court.
Johnson fits that mold to a tee. He can play like a traditional post player. He’s a big body that can get good position in the paint. You can throw the ball into him and he can get you a bucket. But he can step out and shoot not only from the mid-range but from the three-point line as well.
