Johnna Jones and Jada Taylor Stand Out at Playmaker Basketball Academy Elite Camp

Prentice Beverly of Balln Prep Girls was in the building evaluating talent at the Playmaker Elite Camp in Clarksville, TN earlier this month. Check out what he had to say about Munford's Johnna Jones and Collierville's Jada Taylor.

Looking for a tough hard nose point guard 2017 Johnna Jones from Munford HS in Drummonds, Tenn drew my attention. Jones played a stellar all-around game. The 5-7 Jones likes to attack off the dribble, with either hand, looking to create contact and finish in traffic. She also showed the willingness to manufacturer her shot by attacking off the bounce as well as consistently draining the spot up jumper and three pointers. Jones did a great job of pushing the ball up the floor on made and missed baskets. She played aggressive at both end of the court and has a knack for being around the ball. Jones rebounds well for her position. She has all the tools to be solid DI point guard.

Player to keep your eyes on is 2018 5-9 Jada Taylor who hails from Collierville HS in Collierville, Tenn. Taylor has good handles, is quick off the dribble and has a true legitimate (that means it’s nice) mid-range jump shot. Handles pressure situations well, doesn’t get rattled speedy combo guard from played extremely well. Taylor had her entire repertoire on display. She used her killer crossover, coupled with her explosive first step, to attack the paint looking to score or dish to slashing teammates. Taylor used her speed and quickness to get out and finish off the break weaving in and out of traffic handling the rock equally with both hands. Taylor also showed that she can consistently stroke the mid-range jumper as well as be a threat from beyond the arc, forcing opponents to choose their poison. Taylor can translate her speed and athleticism to pay great dividends on the defensive end forcing turnovers and cashing in on the other end.
