Jerome "Stretch" Johnson, a 6-foor-8, 215-pound power forward from Bullis H.S. in Potomac, Md., turned in some fine offensive performances last weekend at the Charlie Weber DC Capitol Invitational.
Johnson, who played with the Cecil Kirk program at the Weber, is a quirky big man with very long arms. While he runs a bit herky jerky and may not be the most fluid looking player, Johnson can be effective with his back to the basket and on the offensive glass thanks to his height and long arms.
Johnson told RivalsHoops.com that Richmond and Northeastern have paid visits to Bullis this spring to take a look at him. UConn and Rutgers have also expressed some interest in the developing big man.
This spring and summer, Johnson will play with Cecil Kirk. RivalsHoops.com will keep you posted on his play and recruitment, so stay tuned.
