Demetrius “Meechie” Johnson (@meechie.1) is a true point guard playing at the International Sports Academy (ISA) this year, previously at Garfield Heights in Cleveland. However, he hasn’t played this year due to a knee injury. The true point guard is listed at 6’0 and 160 pounds, but he looks much stronger than that. The class of 2021 guard is ranked number 40, according to ESPN, and he’s staying in his home state for college after committing to Ohio State, where is former teammate Alonzo Gaffney (@0gaffney) attends. The first time I watched Johnson play was two years ago when his clearly unfavored team took on Huntington Prep. They lost that game, but Meechie’s competitive attitude and motor was noticeable. He is an incredible ball handler, pounding the ball on every dribble. His change of direction and stutter step play to his advantage almost every time down the floor. He has great court vision that will shine at the next level when he’s surrounded by better players that can play off him. He’s a bit undersized and not necessarily a shot creator, but he does have a quick release which negates those to some effect. As he’s almost been away from the game for a year now, I’m disappointed that I don’t get to see him play tonight because I know he’s been grinding to get better. As I mentioned before, his most impressive feature is his high powered motor. Johnson has so much energy on the court and plays both defense and offense. My player comparison: Kemba Walker (@_kw15). Both players, although undersized, find a way to score and are exceptional ball handlers. Both are incredibly quick with choppy feet as well. I think Meechie, who LeBron James refers to as “nephew”, is going to surprise a lot of people who have forgotten about him once he’s healthy.
