With the last edition of the All-State Team we round out the top 20 prospects in the state this year. With exceptional guard play, dominant bigs, and versatile wings here are the Prep Hoops All-State Honorable Mentions

RJ Johnson RJ Johnson 6'3" | PG Grissom | 2023 State #166 Nation AL 6’3 PG Grissom 2023 

Johnson is a big physical guard who commands the point guard position with heady plays and an unmatched size and athleticism combo. Johnson has a sixth sense of knowing when his guys are getting open and is one of the rare players who see things a step ahead. He can throw teammates open, make outlet passes, make timely dump-off passes, and hit shooters in their pocket when creating off the dribble drive. In addition, Johnson’s bulldog approach allows him to dominate the paint as a scorer. He uses his body well on drives when getting his shoulders ahead of defenders to bump defenders off, initiate contact at the basket, and finish through bigs. He also has a vertical explosion that allows him to play above the rim and be a legitimate lob threat off-ball and a consistent contributor to the offensive rebounding efforts.
