Alexander Johnson, a talented 6-9, 215 pound power forward/center from Dougherty H.S. in Albany, Georgia who signed a letter of intent with Georgia, will play at Bridgton Academy in Maine during the 2002-2003 season. Johnson, who did not achieve qualifying marks to make himself eligible at Georgia for this season, is hoping to straighten out his classroom situation and improve his game under highly regarded head coach Whit Lesure.
Johnson also considered Alabama and Cincinnati during his recruiting process.
Johnson is a much improved player on the offensive end but he has room to grow in this area too. He will play in a league that is strong with high division one players competing against him every night.
Johnson possesses many of the physical tools that should help him become a reliable performer in the low post. He is likely to become a great college player with his upside and talent.
