Despite already being a five-star recruit as a post player, Johnson believes he can develop into a combo-forward. Considering his athleticism, it is not out of the realm of possibility.
"Like Kevin Garnett, that's how I want to be," Johnson said. "My strengths are in the post, but outside I can dribble a little bit and I'm working hard to get better."
"I'll probably go through the whole process," Johnson confessed. "I don't want to rush things. I'll pick the school that is best for me." In addition to improving his perimeter game, Johnson wants to bulk up some more. He has already added some muscle but thinks that a playing weight of 225 is very realistic.
Whether he further develops as a combo-forward or stays inside, there is no doubt that Amir Johnson will be one of the more sought after prospects on the West Coast next year. His athleticism and natural talents make him more than a little intriguing.
