2017 Intro: Myles Johnson
One of the most intriguing prospects at the Pangos All-West Frosh/Soph Camp was 6-foot-6, 210-pound Long Beach (Calif.) Poly center Myles Johnson. Scout.com provided the following evaluation of the 2017 prospect from the event: Johnson is about 6-foot-6 with extremely long arms and looks like he has some growing to do, which would take his stock as a prospect to the next level. He's very skilled for a young post and is an outstanding passer for the position. Johnson has nice hands, which along with his size and length make him a good rebounder on both ends. Johnson is comfortable playing with his back to the basket but can also step out and shoot from midrange. His length, feel and skill level combined with expectation of future growth make him a nice prospect. The emerging center prides himself on what he provides defensively. “I’m a good defensive player; I get a lot of blocks and rebounds,” Johnson said. “On offense I’m a really good passer but I’m still trying to work on my offensive game. I’m working on my midrange game, my handle and being more competitive.” The only varsity experience Johnson has so far is from playoffs last season, so his recruitment is still in its initial stages. That said, he has high hopes academically. “My dream school is Stanford,” Johnson said. “If I don’t make it in basketball I want to be an engineer and they have my field. I want a good university; academics are important to me.”
