Virginia Basketball Recruiting: James Johnson

Marcus ShockleyCorrespondent IApril 5, 2010

Virginia added some interior size when they landed James Johnson (C, 6′8″, 2010) a mobile post player with shooting range.

Johnson is a pure post player who will need to develop a bit more into a banger in order to play the lane in the ACC, but his ability to move his feet, spin, and get off shots is going to make him tough for ACC big men to defend.

Johnson is a pure post player, although at his size he would be considered undersized for the pro game. He will be a solid collegiate paint player and should see some court time in his first season, especially with the offense he can add.

He can play facing the basket but may need to develop his post-up game when he’s faced with players his own size.
