Keldon Johnson experienced a bit of a break out during our prestigious Virginia Top 80. It was then that the 6'5' 2018 guard was able to go toe to toe with the state's best players and show he was among the best.

Fast forward through an AAU season that saw him play with Team Loaded Virginia and a great appearance at the Super Sophomore Camp and ESPN now has Johnson rated as the number 25 player in the 2018 class. This weekend, Johnson played in Corey Pegram's Summer Finale where we were able to catch up with Johnson.

After his showing at the Virginia Top 80, we wrote,''Johnson experienced a break out of sorts, during camp. His size and skill set are elite for a freshman and his bloodlines (brother Kaleb going to Georgetown) are great. Johnson's Camp Coach Craig Dawson stated, 'Keldon took a lot of shots, but his skill set is high. He has a pure shooting stroke.' We are eager to watch Johnson progress, the sky could be the limit.'

In an incredible freshman season at Park View High School (South Hill, Va) Johnson averaged just shy of 27 points per game, with a 26.8 per game average. In fact, Johnson's prolific freshman season saw him break a 63 year record of most points scored for a high school freshman with 559 points scored. Johnson carries great bloodlines as Keldon's older brother, Kaleb, is a 2015 graduate of Carlisle School and a current rising freshman at Georgetown University.

This weekend we caught up with Johnson and spoke about his recruitment. Since his performance at the Virginia Top 80, Johnson has picked up 8 Division 1 offers,''East Carolina, NC State, Georgetown, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Old Dominion, Penn St, and Cincinnati have offered me. It is an exciting time, all this is happening, but it doesn't surprise me.'

As we mentioned before Keldon's brother Kaleb is a rising freshman at Georgetown. When asked whether or not he will make a decision separate of his brother Keldon seemed to have some uncertainty stating,''Well I don't know. I probably will, but'Maybe…'

After seeing Johnson again at Corey Pegram's Summer Finale, our Jamie Shaw stated,''There Are Not 20 Better Players in The 2018 Class Than 6’5 Keldon Johnson (Park View). A 5-Star.''Johnson has a smooth feel for the game, he is comfortable on the ball in the half court. The 4.0 student has a very lengthy frame and is able to score the ball at all 3-levels. As we stated after the Virginia Top 80, the sky is the limit for him.
