Johnson (aka) the big fundamental had a great aau showing this year, she was very skilled and well taught coming into the 2016 summer. Kayla definitely was underrated for the class of 2020 forwards across the country, but her skilled set and other intangible has earned her a spot to play in the 3rd Annual GTHING BASKETBALL ALL STAR CLASSIC.

Gthing Basketball would like to congratulate Kayla on her selection in wish her well as she heads to high school this fall. Watch and listen as we bring you more top players that will play in the 3rd Annual Gthing ALL STAR CLASSIC.
