adidas: Isaac Johnson one of west's top 2019 prospects

EMERSON, Ga. - Isaac Johnson entered the spring as Scout's 42nd ranked prospect in 2019 and he did nothing to discredit that status on Saturday at the adidas Gauntlet.

One of the West Coast’s top prospects in 2019 is Exum Elite’s Isaac Johnson.

The 6-foot-10, 200-pound power forward from American Fork (Utah) is Scout’s 42nd ranked prospect in the class.

On Saturday at the adidas Gauntlet in Emerson (Ga.), Johnson showed his high level mobility for the position, ability to score in transition or with his jumper, motor, rebounding and overall versatility and upside.

“Playing up to 17s team this year I have to adjust a little bit,” Johnson said. “Guys are bigger than me so I have to go the boards and see what comes.”

The four-star prospect’s offer list includes Utah, BYU and Utah State. He broke down what he likes about each of them.

Utah: “They’re in the Pac-12 so I like the competition. They have a really good program.”

BYU: “It’s close to home and it’s an LDS school. They just got new facilities.”

Utah State: “They’re about two hours away and I like the fan base; they have great attendance.”

Johnson doesn’t plan on making a decision anytime soon.

“I’m just seeing what comes and will hopefully make a decision late junior or early senior year,” he said.
