In a word, Cameron Johnson can be defined. Versatile. From lining up on the football field to playing all five positions on the basketball court for Steve Turner at Gonzaga College in Washington, D.C., the 6-foot-4, 220-pound wing does a little bit of everything.
Versatility is the foundation to Johnson's game. Recently named most valuable player at the Gonzaga Classic in December, the class of 2008 prospect is fine tuning his game in his junior campaign.
"He's a multi-dimensional player that is a mismatch problem wherever he plays," Turner said. "We can play him anywhere from the one to the five in our system. He's really skilled.
"Cam can create off the dribble, create off the bounce, shoot the three, score on the block and best of all, he knows how to use his big body."
Colleges have taken notice.
"He has a slew of mid-major offers," Turner said.
Those include William & Mary, George Mason and Virginia Commonwealth while Kansas State, Illinois, South Florida, Miami and Maryland are keeping close tabs, Turner said.
Maryland, Miami and Notre Dame are all interested in Johnson on the football field, Turner said. Johnson is projected as a defensive back at the next level.
Turner said Johnson will play both sports next year and will participate in the spring AAU events as well as the football combines. A decision has not been made about what sport, or both, he will pursue at the next level.
