#AskCoachB: Johnson belongs among elite

Want to ask ESPN RecruitingNation national recruiting director Paul Biancardi a question about basketball recruiting? Tweet it to @PaulBiancardi using the hashtag #AskCoachB.

Stanley Johnson had a fantastic summer by scoring, rebounding and playing hard.

If I had to pick five guys this summer who played with the best motor, he would be on that list. He has made big improvements in his game, especially shooting from distance with more efficiency and effectiveness.

He is best at driving the ball as he finishes through contact, cutting his way into the paint.

His preseason summer ranking at No. 12 says that he should be an impact player at the college level and that fact that he cracked the top 10 (now at No. 9) means he earned his way in with other elite prospects. At RecruitingNation, we not only rank recruits but grade them out and give them a full evaluation. Please take a look at those other areas for Johnson and I believe you will agree.
