Watched several of 23 Tessa Johnson games lately (SC recruit). Yeah, she can shoot, but the level of play in her division is not high, and the speed of the games is really slow, with little to no pressure defense, hand checking, presses etc…it’s almost like watching pickup games where everyone is being nice. Tessa may well end up a great college player, but she will need to learn to play defense before she sees much court time at SC and the speed of her game will need to be increased immensely. There is a lot of work left for her to be as good as some think. Her handles are not anywhere near elite either…..I think you will see in the AA game she is a step behind the leaders in this class as far as being ready for college defenses and also just how fast she can play the game right now.
