The 5’9 combo guard plays much bigger than her size…..extremely crafty at creating her own shot off the bounce..plays the game with a lot of intensity...above average skills in most key areas...as she adds some polish to her game she should start popping up on more recruiters radar...Next level athleticism make her one to watch during the upcoming NCAA viewing period.

2021 pf Jabrea Johnson Kentucky Premier
Solid, strong six-foot post player with tremendous upside.... A classic banger with good hands and a soft shooting touch...was equally comfortable stepping out to the perimeter in the teams motion offense where she consistently found open cutters...if she can consistently knock down the mid-range jumper she will become even an even hotter commodity this off-season.
