It’s officially AAU season. That means we’ll be getting all kinds of mixtape videos of prospects showing their skills and making ridiculous plays. For my money, there isn’t a player in the country that I’d rather watch than Nick Johnson. The 2011 combo guard has UK on his heels and he’d be an outstanding addition to the back court of what should be a legendary recruiting class for the Cats.
When I was in high school and I lowered my rim down to 9 feet, this is exactly what I felt I looked like. Although in reality it was probably a lot more awkward looking than the smooth moves Nick is able to pull off.
