Jajuan Johnson Analyzes Three

Alabama, Marquette and Miami are the three schools vying for the signature of Jajuan Johnson, the talented Southwind High School (Memphis, TN) versatile player. He officially visited Tuscaloosa September 29th, the weekend of the Ole Miss vs. Tide football game.

A natural shooting guard at 6'5" and 188 pounds, Jajuan Johnson possesses the skill set capable of operating at the point and wing positions too. According to the Scout.com four-star rated shooting guard, he shot 58% from the field and 86% from the charity stripe last season. Johnson ranks 32nd overall and 8th at the position. Kobe Bryant and Louis Williams were two players Johnson admired growing up.

He has designated November 2nd as the day for his announcement to be held at the school gymnasium with a specific time as yet to be determined. "A couple of years ago, people didn't know me," said the class of 2013 prospect about the recruiting process. It's all been kind of fun. You only live once." Johnson is scheduled to take the ACT test for the second time on October 27th with hopes of improving his score from a 16 to at least an 18.

‘BAMA Magazine/'BamaMag.com spoke to the coveted prospect Monday evening about the trio of schools under consideration.

Alabama - "I like the college atmosphere at Alabama. They have a lot of people there. I'm the kind of person that likes to be around people. The team is family oriented. The players do a lot of things together. I have a real good relationship with Coach Grant. He has been recruiting me even before I started getting good and the people around the country started knowing about me.

Marquette – "Marquette has some good players coming in and if I add myself it would be almost a great class. It's in a good conference and they have a good coaching staff.

Miami – "I like Miami. It's a beautiful city. They have a pro team down there so you get a lot of exposure. They have six seniors leaving so I would have a chance to get immediate playing time."
