After a modest season last year as a freshman at Chipola Junior College in northwestern Florida, big sophomore Kareem Johnson has come on strong this season and is ranked among the top rebounders in Florida's junior college system. His 12 points-per-game average, coupled with a 10.6 rebounds-per-game effort this year, has helped him earn All-Conference honors this season.

Described as "one of the best inside players in the conference", Kareem has made a habit out of hammering away at opponents in the low post. The Vandals need height, weight and strength in the front court next year, and Kareem certainly fits the bill. At 6-8 and 240 pounds he's listed as both a forward and center prospect, and is certainly among the biggest prospects Idaho is recruiting.

Without doubt, he possesses the size and strength to come in next season and earn significant playing time for the Vandals, and could possibly win a starting job outright.
