Kadarius KD Johnson is a tough competitor who has no problem talking trash and using mind games to intimidate opponents. KD plays with a high motor and it shows on both ends of the floor. He takes on defensive challenges looking to upset opponents. His ability to pass the ball, especially in the PnR action, is incredible. He can find the rolling big or the wing that will lift to the wing or slide to the corner. KD can expand his game when he becomes a consistent shooter and learns how to control the pace of the game.
HoopSeen Fall Preview - Suwanee, GA - 10/21/2018
Who arguably was the best player at the Fall Preview. He can score at all three levels with the ability to create for himself off the bounce to get into the lane or for the pull-up jumper. He has very good court vision to find open teammates, and he is physically strong enough to guard multiple positions. However, my favorite thing about him is he seems to have a nasty streak and talks a bit of TRASH!
Scrimmage vs Tucker HS - Decatur, GA - 11/3/2018
Getting after it on the defensive end, had a couple of on-ball steals. Pushes the ball in transition and finished strong at the rim. Played a bit out of control, gambles too much in the passing lanes looking for breakaway dunk opportunities.
Braggin' Rights GA vs AL - Huntsville, AL - 12/8/2018
Did everything he could on the offensive end, dropping 30 the night before against Lithonia HS. He poured in 29, knocking down 3's, he made some tough mid-range jumpers and got to the rim whenever he wanted.
Tip-Off Classic - Suwanee, GA - 4/29/2019
Fast fast fast, gets out in the open court. Likes to get into the teeth of the defense and calaps it for himself or teammates. Competive defender, that will chase you down and meet you at the rim! Made nice pocket pass with probe out of PnR for layup. Strong guard that can finish with contact!
UGA Team Camp - Athens, GA - 6/15 &16/2019
Day 1 - Plays at 100 miles an hour, gets to basket with ease. Struggles get his shot of, everything seems difficult but he make them. I would also like to see him play with better pace. Defends his position well, looks to play passing lanes for easy run out dunks.
Day 2 - Getting in to the lane, drawing fouls and knocking down the 3 ball. Doing a better job of change pace to get into the lane.

Georgia Elite 8 Tip-Off Classic - Powder Springs, Ga - 11/9/2019
