Top 20 Profiles of 2020: No. 3 Termarr Johnson


Phil Kerber
Georgia Scouting Director

We are down to our final three in our countdown of the top-20 most viewed profiles of 2020. The honor of No. 3 belongs to SS Termarr Johnson (Mays, 2022). Johnson drops one spot in our countdown, falling from No. 2 in 2019 to now No. 3.

The left-handed hitting shortstop is one of the premier players in the entire country, ranking No .2 in Georgia and No. 3 Overall. He is advanced in every facet of the game. At the plate, everything comes easy to him and he has a natural ability to slow the game down. His bat to ball skills are impressive to say the least. Johnson consistently barrels the ball up and drives it to all fields. Look for him to be one of the first high school prospects taken in the 2022 MLB Draft.

Scouting Report

3/06/20

A top-5 ranked prospect in the country, 5-foot-9, 165-pound left-handed hitting middle infielder, highly athletic, broad shoulders with advanced strength throughout frame, especially in his lower half. Mature beyond his age in the box, open setup with weight loaded on his back-side, hands load back smoothly and drop, short stride to a balanced position. Explosive lower half and hands through contact, short to the zone with quick hand speed, swings with easy effort and in an aggressive manner, level barrel path, drives the ball around the entire field, good hand-eye coordination, is able to lace pitches where they are hit. Puts pressure on the defense with his speed, always looking for the extra bag, easy strider.

Stands 5-foot-9, 145-pounds with twitchy-athleticism throughout, and some natural strength present. Singled in his first at-bat and later drove a ball high and deep to the back side gap. Large, pronounced leg kick works in sync with fluent, downward hands, and the barrel whips through the zone with some strength to all fields. Impressive prospect in the 2022 class.

10/08/18

It took all of one throw in the outfield while warming up for 2022 Termarr Johnson (Mays HS, GA) to stand out. His quick, whippy arm and flashy glove skills immediately catch the eye, even though he is only 5-foot-8, 140-pounds. His energy on the diamond is relentless, and he plays with a confidence that is unmatched and unparalleled even amongst players two years his senior. A left-handed hitter, Johnson utilizes a bigger leg kick to trigger his hands down and back before his quick hands and aggressive hips whip the barrel through the zone on a level plane with a higher finish. He smashed a double to the opposite field off the fence on the third day after posting quality at-bats throughout with a plethora of walks. Johnson’s energy and athleticism make it hard to look away when he’s performing, and he already looks like one of the premier prospects in the 2022 class.

7/23/18

Young middle infielder jumped out for his all-around tool package, including special defense and speed.  Short, athletic frame w/ high-waist, some present lower half strength.  Twitchy w/ projection.  Offensively, hits w/ a slightly open, very slightly crouched stance into leg kick and proper load.  Generates bat speed through the zone w/ proper path.  Advanced hand-eye coordination.  Projectable pull power as frame matures.  Plus runner ran a 4.28 and 4.15 down the line from the left side.  Defensively, features special actions now, soft hands, plays through the ball well w/ first step quickness to both directions and easy arm strength.
