Three Brooklyn Basketball Players – Richmond, Johnson, Moranta – Making Noise on the Hardwood this Season

It looks like Brooklyn’s Kadary Richmond’s basketball future will be a bright one if he continues to progress on the hardwood.

The former South Shore High School Viking shooting guard has moved up on ESPN’s 2020 top 100 high school players list from the 99th spot to No. 83.

Richmond, who reclassified for 2020, is now playing hoops for Brewster Academy in New Hampshire and has committed to Syracuse University in the fall. 

Majesty Johnson 

Excuse me, your Majesty!!!!!

Brooklyn Collegiate’s Majesty Johnson is arguably one of the finest point guards in the PSAL. Just ask his coaches and teammates, and they will tell you that the senior is special and makes everyone around him better.

In fact, junior Tahron Allen said he and Johnson are a fearsome tandem, and he often gets the needed motivational and technical support from his backcourt partner to raise the level of his game. 

“He keeps me in my game,” Allen said in an interview back in November. “He speaks to me, especially when my shots are not falling. He tells what I need to adjust, and he helps me on the court. Us two together, we dominate, and we’re the best backcourt in the city.”

Johnson has averaged 9.14 points, 5.43 rebounds and six assists per game in seven league contests thus far. Furthermore, the BC Lions coaching staff said on Twitter that “he’s rapidly closing in on 500 career assists.” 

Jeremy Moranta 

Transits Tech’s Jeremy Moranta is another guard to keep a watchful eye on this season. Moranta’s impressive numbers speak for itself, as he has averaged 23.75 points, 10.5 boards and 6.25 dishes per game.
