Memphis Preps/Recruiting

Former Memphis Tigers Shooter passes ability down to son.

 Mingo Johnson by the way of Nashville is known for his long range streaky shooting. He could catch fire and hit 8 three pointers in a row. The 6″2 guard was a Juco player that made a name for himself in Tiger blue.  Mingo Johnson started his college career at Aquinas College and Prep career in Nashville.
Mingo had some historic moments in Tiger Blue such as the classic battles against former rival Arkansas Razorbacks where he caught fire for 32 points. Mingo was a 38% career shooter from behind the arc.

Mingo Johnson is now a retired 3 point marksman. He is now the proud father of a young 3 point marksman  by the name of Jordan Johnson who is no secret in the city of Memphis. He has been a solid guard since Middle School. Jordan started his Prep career at Overton but since joining  Central Warriors he has been the quiet assasian from behind the arc. Jordan is now heading into his senior year in HighSchool.

The 2018 senior to be is  currently one of the hottest names from  Team Penny AAU team. Jordan played only 15 minutes a game but was very productive when on the court. He showed he can run a team as well as shoot the family tradition 3 point shot. Jordan currently holds offers from University of Tennessee Martin and East Tennessee State. After a solid outing in one of the toughest AAU tournaments the EYBL. Jordan has caught the attention of many College coaches. Tiger coach Tubby Smith was front row at all the games. The Tigers are monitoring Jordan closely. One close game Jordan hit a game winning 3 point basket. His shooting is like his dad once they get it going they get it going.

Mr. 3,2,1 the  6″0 guard will look to take one step at a time as he will focus to end his Prep career with a bang in the loaded  AAA district. Jordan Johnson is different from his father Mingo Johnson. Mingo was a pure scorer, & his son Jordan is a playmaker and scorer.

Very similar in heart never scared to back down from a challenge. It’s a Johnson thing.
