PROFILE: Raja Johnson

HEIGHT: 6-foot-5

WEIGHT: 188 Pounds

CLASS: 2010, a current sophomore

POSITIONS: Power Forward/Small Forward/Point Guard

HIGH SCHOOL: Bishop Maginn High School in Albany, New York

AAU PROGRAM: Albany City Rocks


WHAT ALBANY CITY ROCKS PROGRAM DIRECTOR JIM HART SAYS ABOUT RAJA JOHNSON'S INDIVIDUAL SKILLS: Raja helps a team win in so many different ways. He can get on the glass and rebound or score around the basket. In a pinch, he helps us break a zone trap with his athletic skills.

EVALUATION: There's plenty of time for Raja Johnson to show what category he belongs at the division one college basketball level. But expect at least low to mid level schools like Marist, Siena, Albany, etc to keep a solid eye on him. Jim Hart believes he is very capable of playing division one basketball and Raja is a few years away before the final judgement comes in.
