2001 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Dominating shot-blocker can change a game just by playing defense without even scoring a point ... Came to Ohio St. raw offensively only scored on put-backs and dunks ... Now has learned to use a consistent hook shot and the occasional jump-shot from 9 feet out ... Work ethic is immeasurable coach able proof of this look no further than his game offensively and from the free throw line where he has improved tremendously ... Athletic can run the floor extremely well and can jump out the gym ... Tough minded kid who plays with a mean streak has the mind set that the paint is his area come in there and your his ... Physically he can become a major defensive force in the NBA now due to his long reach, jumping ability and timing that can make him a Theo Ratliff type player ... Unlike many shot-blockers Johnson controls his body very well and avoids picking up easy fouls ...

Weakness: Could still use some added upper body strength to his thin lean frame ... Lack of body strength make it hard for him to sustain his position on the blocks ... Offense is still not at the NBA level although he has made vast improvements ... Not a dominating rebounder due to the fact that he often is out of position from trying to roam the lane to block shots ... Has a tendency to be overaggressive when playing defense needs to learn that he can't block every shot ... Offense is very predictable because of his lack of offense ... Not much of a passer susceptible to double-teams ... Needs to become a better post target by getting wider on the blocks to make it more easier to pass the ball into him ...
