Who's got next in the Bay Area

11/2/2008

Who's got next? Each month, ESPN RISE finds out. Here is an athlete we recognized in November:

KEVIN JOHNSON
JUNIPERO SERRA -- BOYS' BASKETBALL

Last year as a freshman, Johnson
had potential, but was basically a
big body in the middle. The upside
was there, however, and as the
6-foot-9 bruiser began tapping into
his potential over the summer, he
found himself rocketing up the
recruiting ranks. With his physical
style and athleticism, Johnson can
finish with the best of them, and
he has the ability to protect the
rim as a shot blocker. Expect him to
earn a substantial amount of playing
time this season. Johnson is
rated the No. 3 center in the Class
of 2011 in the ESPNU Terrific 25.
